EVENT CANCELLED

ARTIST PRESENTATION: LAUREN GALLASPY, CERAMICS

11 a.m. Wednesday, April 8
Lecture Center 108
Free admission

Gallaspy's work is about imbalance: the vulnerability of living things and the sometimes violent, sometimes pleasurable, almost always complex consequences that occur when bodies and objects in the world come into contact with one another. She uses ornamentation, obsessive mark-making, and imagery to render interior spaces and intense psychological experiences physically.
