'Fields of Indigo' by Rowland Ricketts.

The Scott Artist Series and Colorado State University’s Department of Art and Art History, in collaboration with the Hatton Gallery, will present an artist talk by Rowland Ricketts on March 1 at 5 p.m. in the Iris and Michael Smith Alumni Center Event Hall on the CSU campus.

During his three-day visit, Ricketts will be teaching a hands-on workshop and giving a public lecture. The workshop, based on block print, will be held in the Clara Hatton Gallery.

About the workshop

The hands-on workshop for art majors will be a fantastic opportunity to see an artist creating work on-site and in the space of a gallery – a space usually for displaying finished artwork.

It’s also an opportunity to talk about the richness of Ricketts’ practice and the potential of art and galleries to house a range of events pertinent to the teaching goals of the visual and liberal arts.

About Rowland Ricketts

Ricketts is a contemporary fiber artist whose practice is both broad and expansive, as well as incredibly specific. He utilizes natural dyes and historical processes to create contemporary textiles that span art and design.
