Stuart Nagy has been a student at Studio 84 for about a year. He has always had a love for art beginning in kindergarten and started working with clay in high school. He creates unique coffee mugs, canvas paintings and much more.
Stuart comes one day a week and spends the day, traveling from Hales Corners, WI. He works on his ceramic containers and other projects. Recently he worked with members of the Geneva Lake Women’s Association and designed a character named Ms. Flippy D’Lid for a special event they will be having in October. Two of Stuart’s unique cow paintings are in the private collection of the Coburn Company.
Stuart’s work has a beautiful earthy, naïve feel to it. With his ceramic, his glaze colors are exquisitely paired to create patterns he has carved into the clay during the process.
Stuart said, “When I walked into the door of Studio 84, I knew this was the place where all my dreams can come true.” One of Stuart’s goals is to open an art studio and have his own gallery and it is at Studio 84 he is learning about all it takes to do that. He has just entered into the Vocational Training in the Arts programing that Studio 84 has. He will be getting his own website and business cards and learn about social media to market his work. You will find him at his booth every other week at the Whitewater City Market on Tuesdays afternoons from 4-7.
You can meet Stuart and many of our other artists during the annual Gala event on Saturday, June 23 from 6-8 pm.
