Hi Everyone –
I just wanted to welcome everyone to a lecture that Shawn Skabelund will be giving in the ceramics studio on Thursday, January 12th at 3pm. Shawn is an artist who “explores what Wendell Berry calls the “unsettling of America,” namely, the effects, the marks, and the changes that humans make on the land and cultures of a given area.” Through drawing, sculpture, and installation, he strives to “give viewers time and space to think about the local communities, economies, and ecosystems they inhabit.”
More can be found on his website at: www.shawnskabelund.com. In addition to the “installations” page, be sure to check out the “drawings” page, too — there’s some amazing work in there.
Shawn is here because he and Tiffany are installing a two person collaborative exhibition at Hanover College. That show opens on Friday, January 13th. I hope to send out more information about that soon.
Anyway, all are welcome to the lecture (and the show).
And spread the word!!
