Starting next month, a local artist will be having a solo exhibition of his work at the celebrated Toledo Museum of Art.
Growing up, Albany resident, Matt Wedel, was inspired to become a ceramicist by watching his father, who was a professional potter. He recalled how, “watching him create things out of clay really stirred my creativity and imagination. Observing him work really gave me the foundation I needed to pursue my own career in ceramics.”
Although he currently lives and works in Albany, Wedel was born in Palisade, CO. He received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2005, and his MFA from California State University Long Beach in 2007.
