Museum Store Artist of the Month: Doug Hanson


Doug Hanson has been a working artist for almost four decades. After beginning his career as a sculptor, he now devotes himself to making functional pottery.



I believe that most of the elements in an artist’s work today can be found in the art of the past. It is rare that the artist is an originator of many new elements. The creative part comes when those influences, both past and invented, are combined, based on the artist’s interests and experiences.--Doug Hanson


Hosts for this Event:
