The ZMA and AAUW are proud to host Andy Rahe, as this year's judge for the exhibition. Andy Rahe, clay artist and teacher, studied at Skidmore College before becoming an apprentice of Toshiko Takaezu. With Takaezu, Andy was critical in completing the "Star Series," a grouping of fourteen 5-6 foot tall thrown, closed forms. Himself a teacher at the Columbus Academy since 2005, Andy continued to create and exhibit with associates of the Takaezu Studio, including shows at Haw Contemporary, KC, MO in 2016 and this spring at the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center in Brooklyn, New York.
