Artists let us see the world through their eyes. Local artist/teacher Jerry Hendershot wants to take it a step further.

On Saturday, Feb. 23, 6-9 p.m. at LaBry Fine Art in BoDo, Hendershot will give an interactive talk about “seeing art through different lenses to help improve vision, change perceptions, and inspire imagination.”

Hendershot is the owner of local studio/classroom Parched Earth Pottery; director of the Tuscarora Pottery School in Tuscarora, Nevada; and a public school art teacher for around 20 years—he’s currently a ceramics instructor for the Boise School District. Education—something he is clearly passionate about.

“I am interested in continuing to grow as an artist but more importantly as an educator,” Hendershot writes on his LinkedIn page.

As if learning more about art from Hendershot wasn’t reason enough to attend the discussion, American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Professional Dorota Siejek-Hendershot from Boise Co-op will be there offering some instruction of her own, with wine and cheese pairings.

The talk is free and open to the public, so if you want to GO! out and enhance your view of art— and learn a little something about wine and cheese while you’re at it—RSVP to [email protected].
