This coming week, we'll be hosting Sean O'Connell as a visiting artist in the ceramics area. Sean's work will be familiar to anyone who has held more than a passing interest in clay. His works have been exhibited everywhere, and for good reason. Sean's pots exude character and confidence—and we're lucky to have scheduled a lecture with Sean and a few hours simply to watch Sean at work.
Sean currently teaches ceramics at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, but originally was from right here in Fayetteville. Sean has a BFA in sculpture from Kansas City Art Institute and and MFA from School for American Crafts at the Rochester Institute of Technology. He has been a resident at Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts and the Archie Bray Foundation, among other places. We're lucky to have him here, and we hope you'll make some time to join us.
Sean's lecture will be held at November 12th at 5:30 PM, in Hillside Auditorium.
Sean's demo will be held in the Ceramics Studio, at 326 Eastern Ave, starting at 10AM.
