Artist Talk: Arlene Shechet

University of Arkansas, Hillside Auditorium

Thursday, Nov 14

5:30–6:30 PM

On Thursday, November 14, Arlene Shechet will participate in the University of Arkansas' Visiting Artist Lecture Series. The event free and open to the public, and no RSVP is required.

Born in 1951 in New York City, Arlene Shechet is fascinated by the way things are made, likening her studio to both farm and factory. Employing an experimental approach to ceramic sculpture, she tests the limits of gravity, color, and texture by pushing against the boundary of classical techniques, sometimes fusing her kiln-fired creations with complex plinths formed of wood, steel, and concrete.
