'Free', photo and art by Marissa Simpson.

‘Free’, photo and art by Marissa Simpson.

It’s October already…this year has gone by like a blur.

Well, listeners, today for you I have Marissa Simpson. Marissa graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a focus on both jewelry making and metal working. She was patient enough to explain some of the processes, along with her personal concepts when creating. I hope you enjoy the interview and slight glimpse into my adolescence (or at least adolescent music taste, with the closing track.)

Autumn is the season for nostalgia!

Cheers!

It’s Wednesday again, listeners. For you today, I have Benjamin Cook. Ben is an U of L graduate whose focus was originally painting, but set out to broadens his ideas of art. Themes Ben explores are current events, technology, nostalgia, and the way artwork is consumed. Much of his work is a direct respond to the constantly changing times we live in, where input is coming at you from all sides, all the time.

You can learn more about Benjamin at benjamincookart.com. Of course, you can also listen to the interview either through the player below or by subscribing to the podcast.

Thanks, and enjoy!
