"Carriers" Exhibit Gallery Talk

I talked about the ceramic sculptures from my Jerome Foundation St. John’s Pottery Emerging Artist residency. This was a casual, fun format. My brother, Dan Jaspersen, happened to be performing a magic and mentalism show the same day on the same campus. We capitalized on the opportunity and presented the gallery talk together.
