GODFREY – Lewis and Clark Community College’s Visiting Artist Lecture Series, sponsored by 1st MidAmerica Credit Union, continues with ceramist Susan Bostwick at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, in the Hatheway Cultural Center’s Ann Whitney Olin Theatre.
The land inspires Bostwick’s art and she enjoys the challenge of problem-solving that working with clay presents. She is drawn to Pre-Columbian Moche cultures, which had a passion for drawing. She uses a process of layering materials, content and techniques to create each piece.
Bostwick holds a master of fine arts degree in ceramics from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and received her undergraduate degree from Webster University in St. Louis. Bostwick’s work has been featured in a number of publications, including “The Yixing Effect” and “500 Animals,” according to her website, http://susanbostwickceramics.net.
“Susan is an exceptional ceramist who creates tantalizing and playful earthenware works with great craftsmanship,” L&C Art Coordinator Chris Brennan said. “She has won several awards, taught at SIUE, as well as other schools and organizations, and was a co-founder of the Alton/Edwardsville studio tour, ARTEAST. We are anxiously looking forward to her artist presentation.”
These lectures are free and open to the public. For information, visit www.lc.edu/visitingartists.
