Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Liz Quackenbush
Start Date: 10/9/2012Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Date: 10/9/2012End Time: 8:00 PM
Event Description:
At first glance, the artwork of Liz Quackenbush appears whimsical, playful and cosmic. An underlying theme of nature is inherent in her forms, which range from hand-built, frog sculptures, to colorful, floral plates and vases. She creates multidimensional forms, some functional and some not so functional, that are varied and dynamic and hold one's attention. According to Quackenbush, "the specific visual syntax that forms such a central part of my work is derived primarily from my own, very personal, experience of nature as an intimate part of daily life."

Quackenbush plays with concepts of form and dimension, material, ornamentation, craftsmanship, tradition, and nature. It is the dynamic of her materials, technique, and forms that create beauty and intrigue in her pieces. Liz Quackenbush received her BFA from the University of Colorado and her MFA from the School for American Craftsmen at Rochester Institute of Technology.
