Patrizio Travagli’s Golden Touch Workshop



The art department has been lucky enough to have Patrizio Travagli and his Golden Touch workshop in town. His aim is to give an object of memory a new meaning through guilding and display. I decided to guild my first ceramic head – an object that demonstrated to me the significance of artistic play.


“Nervous Laughter: A Solo Exhibition by Morgan Bak”


Friday, August 7th, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

at The Machine Shop, 4 South Wasatch, Colorado Springs, CO

“The Machine Shop is excited to present the work of emerging artist, Morgan Bak. As a primarily self-taught ceramic sculptor, Morgan’s sculptures of warped, exaggerated facial features take on an uneasy quality. Facial expressions are a key tool in determining the status of one’s inner emotional state. This concept has fascinated Morgan, leading to highly-expressionistic faces as a common theme in her work. Join us for an opening featuring her resident work at the Machine Shop.

Morgan Bak is a senior studio art major at Colorado College and works with various mediums such as clay, ink, acrylic paint, woodcuts, drypoint, and etching (line, softground, aquatint) with a primary focus on ceramic sculpture, illustration, and printmaking.”
