TARA CARTER
‘Birds of Telluride’
December 2019 – January 2020

 

This collection of Tara Carter’s sculpted birds is just a small sample of birds that frequent Telluride. Much like the people who make up our community, all of these birds contribute in their own way to make Telluride a place we love to be in. Some may stick out more than others, but that's what keeps our little town so interesting. “I made these sculptures for the same reasons that I enjoy birding. These days, it’s refreshing to open my eyes to a world that is more beautiful than I expected,” says Carter. “My goal is for the viewer to be drawn into the flashes of color, intricate feather patterns, and individual personalities by getting up close and examining birds that are typically out of view. Hopefully, seeing my work makes people more aware that the world may be larger than we think and that it’s worth opening our minds to a different perspective every now and then.”

 Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Tara earned both her Bachelor of Arts in Ceramics and her Master of Business Administration from Otterbein University. Since graduating in 2011, Tara has been teaching ceramics classes, developing her own work by attending a variety of workshops, and exhibiting her wares. Currently, Tara works full-time at the Ah Haa School for the Arts as the Youth Curriculum and Ceramics Studio Manager in Telluride, CO. She fills her spare time making pottery and bird sculptures while enjoying the mountains of Telluride.

 The show runs through January 2020 at Telluride Arts HQ Gallery, located at 135 W Pacific in Telluride, Colorado. Open daily from 12-6 pm, or by appointment.
