Kim Dickey, professor of ceramics at the University of Colorado in Boulder, will hold a workshop Sept. 17 and 18 in the Ceramics Lab at Rarick Hall, room 123.
During the 9 a.m.-2 p.m. seminar, Dickey will discuss ceramics, installations, mixed media, and perhaps new genres of art. Dickey will also show slides and discuss and demonstrate her work. She uses computers, ceramics and music to create her pieces. She also makes socially political pieces such as travel urinals for women in her industrial ceramics series.
Also on Sept. 17, Kirk Ambrose, a nationally-known art historian, will lecture on medieval art at 7 p.m. in Rarick Hall, room 113. Ambrose's lecture, "Hair Pulling and Decapitation: Capital Programmatics at the Vezelay," comes from a chapter of his book and has been presented at Indiana University and the University of Michigan.
Both workshops are free and open to the public. However, seating is limited, so spots may be reserved by calling (785) 628-8678.
