Public Lecture: Amy Smith, 2013 Rosenquist Artist in Residence
The Department of Visual Arts at North Dakota State University has announced Amy Smith, Lincoln, Nebraska, as the 2013 James Rosenquist Artist in Residence. Ms. Smith will work spring semester 2013 in the studio dedicated for the program at NDSU’s Downtown Visual Arts Department, interacting with students, holding public lectures, and opening her studio for visitors.
A public lecture has been scheduled for Wednesday, January 23 at 2:30 PM, 5th Floor Renaissance Hall. Ms. Smith will discuss her techniques, ideas, and artwork. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Ms. Smith works intuitively with porcelain, letting it guide her and allowing open forms to gently hold space. Her pieces invite the viewer to touch as they blend the relationship between wind and wave. She uses fluid glazes over carved surfaces, which encourages them to break, run and pool. At NDSU, Ms. Smith will teach a seminar course and her residency will culminate with an exhibition and donation of a piece of artwork to the James Rosenquist Artist Residency Collection.
