Meet our Artist in Residence,
Liz Shepherd

Liz will be with us through the beginning of November

Tucked away in the exhibition gallery located at 100 Pier 4, we have a studio for an Artist in Residency program. We are proud to introduce Liz Shepherd as our fall artist in residence. Shepherd is a sculptor and print maker with a well-established career. Liz will be hosting two events, a field trip and a paper mache workshop, at her personal South End studio. RSVP for an event today!

"Handmade objects are soulful in a way machine made things are not. Frequently I 'read' them by holding them in my hand,and enjoying what is tactile." -Terrill Waldman









"Everyone has the ability to appreciate the work of a master craftsperson." -Richard Oedel









My work expresses how I see nature in the present world...beauty with hidden flaws imposed by humans." -Linda Huey
