CURRENT EXHIBITION: An Exploration in Ceramics
Dates: March 21-April 19, 2013
An Exploration in Ceramics offers viewers the opportunity to experience works from the students in Department of Art instructor Lisa Stinson’s intermediate/advanced clay class. The works are self-directed projects that include functional pottery, sculptural forms, and casted objects. On display are works that range from the traditions of functional pottery, to ceramic interpretations of the human form, to abstract pieces that challenge traditional notions of the limitations of ceramics. All works included stem from each student’s individual ideas and their own personally pursued projects. An Exploration in Ceramics offers a glimpse into the range of unique styles and approaches the each student has developed and offers the ASU community.
About the Artists:
Katherine Meeks is a junior pursuing a BS in Art Education and BFA in Studio Art with a concentration in ceramics. Her work focuses largely on education, information, technology, and logic and reason.
Laurie Kirkpatrick is a third year student at Appalachian State University working towards her BFA. Her primary focus is ceramics and work currently focuses on functionality in porcelain.
Devyn Vasquez is a junior BFA Studio Art and Art Management major. She is from Raleigh, North Carolina and has worked primarily two-dimensional, but is exploring the realm of working three-dimensional and plans to concentrate in clay sculpture. Much of her work deals with the figure, particularly the female figure, and contains a narrative aspect.

Currently, she is finishing a minor in Psychology and plans to pursue a Master’s in Art Therapy. Horne’s work is inspired by the unique perspectives that humans bring to their own lives and situations. Personality, background, location, and relationships make each perspective unique, however small the differences.
Melina LaVecchia is a senior Art Education major. She is inspired by the remnants of nature and the texture of the sea. She uses those influences in everyday life, as a functional reminder of where we live.

She is currently pursuing a Bachelor of the Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Ceramics, and plans to graduate in December 2013.
Brandon Kourie is a junior Art Education major. His work explores form versus function and exploring the process of making using the potter’s wheel.
