While at USU, the public will have the rare opportunity to watch Martincic and Pintz at work in the ceramic and printmaking studios Feb. 26-28 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in rooms FAV 104 and FAV 121, located in the Chase Fine Arts Center.
The visiting artists will also present demonstrations to ceramic and printmaking classes and give critiques of student work.
The talk Wednesday, Feb. 27, in FAV Room 150, features both artists discussing their work and the influences in their lives. The event is free and open to the public.
