Prof. Wynne Wilbur (Ceramics) is on sabbatical leave for the 2012-2013 school year. She just completed an artist's residency in Jingdezhen, China during the month of September, where she worked with the porcelain materials that are historically associated with this community in China. After her return, she will be a featured artist at the Kansas Artist-Craftsman Association yearly meeting, and will be showing her work at the Quincy Arts Center in the spring. She also shared with us these great pictures of her in China!
Careful readers of the blog will know that this semester is a great time to explore China with the Art Department. The Gallery is just finishing a month-long retrospective of Lampo Leong's work; furthermore, on Tuesday, October 16 two exhibitions featuring work from China will both open in the Gallery ("Connections: Design and Illustration From Art Schools Around the World", and "The China Trade"). Stay tuned here and to the Gallery blog for more information about those great shows!
