VITERBO PRESENTS CERAMIC SCULPTURE WORKSHOP THIS THURSDAY
LA CROSSE, Wis.—Guest artist Marcy Neiditz will present an artistic demonstration and discuss her creative process as a ceramic sculptor, including building and glazing techniques, at a ceramic workshop Thursday, Feb. 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in room 301 of the Fine Arts Center.
Marcy will examine the content of her work as well as her influences and will conclude with a question and answer period and, for those interested, she will offer a guided gallery tour of her artwork.
Marcy grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and moved to Los Angeles in 1977. While pursuing a career as a landscape designer in Los Angeles, she was a part-time ceramic artist and eventually decided to devote herself to the art full-time. Marcy received her BFA in Ceramics from California State University, Long Beach, Calif., in 1996 and her MFA in Ceramics from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, 2000. Last year Marcy was acting gallery director and instructor at Clarion University in Pennsylvania. In the fall of 2002, Marcy moved back home to Bloomington to spend more time on her creative endeavors. She is now a full-time ceramic artist, and co-owner of a new co-operative art gallery in Bloomington, Gallery North on the Square.
This event is free and open to the public.
