With graduation on December 12th, the fall semester at Truman is officially over.
We hope you will enjoy the break between semesters, maybe go to a museum or two, and come back well-rested and ready to dive in for the spring semester. See you in January!

Chandra DeBuse, a Kansas City area artist whose work was on display in the Truman State University Gallery for the month of November, gave a workshop and lecture for Truman ceramics students (and other members of the art department) during a visit on November 9th. During the workshop she demonstrated her “drop mold” system of making pots and sculptures and had students contribute to one sculpture of a cactus that she demonstrated on. During these demonstrations, and then later during her lecture, she talked about her journey to becoming a studio artist, including her previous career as a psychologist, her education as a potter, her residency experiences, and the inspiration for and meaning of her work.
