Showcase Chair Page Hawley

OPA President Dina Temkin

Building Chair Aubrey Sloan

Points Fonda Sanchez

  Page loves to play at the intersection of art and craft. After exploring many mediums in her life as an artist, she found clay in 2016. She enjoys the practice of pottery to improve quality of life and presence of mind.
 Through pottery I have been able to create pieces that are meaningful and unique to my identity as an Indigenous-Mexican woman. Exploring and creating with clay has opened a space for me to dive deeper into my personal story and how the art is a direct link to my ancestors.

Workshifts Jennifer Hill 

 Clay artist, river guide, massage therapist—I love working with my hands!
Jennifer Hill is a studio artist and traveling instructor based in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Earning a BFA and MFA in ceramics led to teaching in colleges and art centers across the country for over 20 years and exhibiting nationwide.

I have made crafts since before my teenage years alternately exploring textiles, metals and clay. As I matured the idea of community became very important to me and so I have pursued working with others to build community around arts experiences.
