Kegs! Casts! and Kraut!

Join PlySpace Resident Fellow, Dave Rowe, for an afternoon of aluminum casting demonstrations, with beer and bratwurst, at Madjax! Minors and supervised children are welcome.

Dave will demonstrate the aluminum casting process using his custom foundry, built during his time at the PlySpace residency this summer.  The demonstration will be held at the Madjax outdoor patio adjacent to Guardian Brewery on Saturday, July 14th. The event will begin at 2:00 PM, with aluminum pours on the hour at 3:00, 4:00, and 5:00.  This demonstration event is free and open to the public. For an additional fee of $10, interested audience members can make a small shape in clay which will be cast during the demonstration. All supplies will be provided, and participation is first-come-first-serve, with a limit of one casting per person until supplies run out. A selection of beer will be available through Guardian Brewery (21 and over), and Bratwurst will be available for purchase from Tastes Good on a Bun ($4 a Brat!).

Dave Rowe is a sculptor, educator, and fabricator. He is currently an Assistant Professor in Sculptural Practices at the University of Nevada Las Vegas and holds a BFA from the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign and an MFA from Indiana University Bloomington.
