Katherine Burke of the Annapolis Collection Gallery has signed MFA member Rick Casali as one of her permanent artists. Rick says, “I am excited to have work in The Annapolis Collection Gallery. Proprietor Katherine Burke has fresh ideas and she’s passionate about promoting the arts in Annapolis. I’m looking forward to performing a live portrait sculpture demo in the gallery during this year’s Fringe Festival on Oct 4. Sculpting the model live for the public is a great way to engage the people and also to teach spectators about this timeless tradition.”
