Anne Perrigo, nationally recognized ceramics artist began a week's artist-in-residency at Fort Hays State University on Sept. 14.
Linda Ganstrom, FHSU professor of art, describes Perrigo as "an emotionally charged feminist artist."
Throughout the week ending Sept. 20, Perrigo's construction of a figurative sculpture will be on display in the ceramics lab, Rarick Hall, room 123.
Perrigo often travels as a visiting artist to universities and art institutions around the nation. She presents slide talks, demonstrations and public lectures on her work with clay and mixed media.
Perrigo is offering three ceramics workshops during her week's stay, which are open to both students and the public. The first workshop focuses on integrating color and form, the second deals with a mixed media-found object sculpture and the third covers china paints on previously glazed objects. Perrigo recommends that participants bring a work in progress to be finished at the workshops.
She will also present a lecture on her work with ceramics on Thursday, Sept. 15. The lecture is open to the public and is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Rarick Hall, room 114.
