North On 71: Artist Profile -Kwok Pong "Bobby" Tso

Another artist participating in North On 71 is Kwok Pong "Bobby" Tso.  Bobby teaches all levels of ceramics at Northwest Missouri State University and is quite the slip casting guru.  His mixed media and ceramic sculptures are a real treat to ponder.

Clean lines, smooth surfaces, and mysterious functions.  Visually, they read as both elaborate contraptions and modernist architecture.

Here's a shot of Bobby Tso and Melody Monroe getting pedestals ready for North On 71!

So when Bobby isn't getting things ready for North On 71, he is organizing/curating a whole extra show called: From There To Here at The Marietta Chair Building (2020 Baltimore Avenue.  Kansas City, Missouri. March 15th-March 19th).  The opening reception is THURSDAY MARCH 17th from 7-9pm.  The image below is a picture of Bobby getting a pedestal ready for From There To Here.

That's not all of the shows Bobby is participating in.  He is also in the Emerging Artist Show at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center.

Be sure to check out the work of Bobby Tso at North On 71 as well as From There To Here, and in the Emerging Artist Show!  You can also check out more of Bobby's work by visiting his website: http://www.bobbytso.com/cermaics/.
