Learn About GAP
John Arnold Taylor received 2007 GAP Award funding to complete a current body of work to be exhibited at the Helen S. Smith Gallery in Green River Community College in October of 2008. He works with traditional materials and processes, creating large ceramic vessels with images carved around the exteriors that have been self-described as loosely autobiographical.
John’s latest work revolves around his “Life in Renton,” depicting the conflict of having a job, commuting through traffic, having a social life, and still finding the time to create artwork.
