Kalamazoo College artist exhibits ceramic sculptures

Dec. 16, 2004

KALAMAZOO--Sarah Lindley, assistant professor of art at Kalamazoo College, is exhibiting her ceramic sculpture in Gallery II of Sangren Hall at Western Michigan University Jan. 6-28. The Gallery II exhibit is free and open to the public weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Lindley gives a free, public slide lecture on her own work at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 6, in Room 1213 of Sangren Hall.

The focus of Lindley's work is creating porcelain sculpture that appears to deny the inherently fragile nature of the material in contrast to the objects they depict. "The porcelain spans large distances and has thin fragile elements that appear to defy gravity and the natural working properties of the material," she says.

Originally from Cleveland, Lindley has the BFA degree from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and an MFA from the University of Washington in Seattle. This past year, her work was at the Fort Wayne Art Museum in Indiana, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Wisconsin and in a traveling exhibition that visited the University of Tennessee, East Tennessee State University and the Maryland State Arts Council.
