Photography by Ricky Katowicz

3 – 4 pm, Contemporary Art Gallery

Part of Locally Made’s One Room.

In Demo & Discourse, artists, designers, and experts from across disciplines and mediums share examples of their work and talk about process.

Armed with a sewing machine as a drawing tool and electronic devices to form sound, Ricky will tell a story using thread, crinoline, and noise. Partly an experiment and partly an instructional video, this presentation will utilize the space and its participants in order to create a unique experience in stitching.Ricky Katowicz

Free with museum admission.

Ricky spends late evenings in his basement studio, using the sewing machine as a drawing tool. In addition, he creates noise and visuals for an experimental group called Wind & Ghosts, performs with an international puppet troupe called Big Nazo, and spends every day designing girls toys for Hasbro. He lives in Cranston, RI with his wife, daughter, cockatiel, and dwarf hamster.
