Pride Artist Talk: Richard Cleaver in Conversation with Adriana Proser

Richard Cleaver works with a wide variety of materials, including clay, and has exhibited and fired his work at Baltimore Clayworks for many years.

Organized by the WALTERS ART MUSEUM. June 8, 5;30-6pm. Virtual.

“Discover how historic collections offer new inspiration for contemporary artists. In celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month, Baltimore-based artist Richard Cleaver joins Adriana Proser, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Quincy Scott Curator of Asian Art, to discuss how Cleaver’s work was influenced by his early museum experiences. Cleaver’s sculptures are evocative of religious reliquaries and shrine architecture, intricate and bejeweled with secret compartments and hidden meanings.”
