Picturing Nature Guest Lecture
November 9, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Guest lecturer Richard Bresnahan is an esteemed artist and director of the pottery studio at Saint John’s, a Benedictine abbey and university in the woodlands of central Minnesota. A respect for natural systems has long shaped the artist’s dialogue with fire and clay. Bresnahan’s pottery utilizes natural resources from his nearby surroundings — local clay and glaze made from ash — and his artistic vision is informed by global environmental concerns. His lecture will expand the exhibition’s consideration of sustainability, functionalism, community building, and a commitment to preservation of the environment.
Join us in the Flaten Art Museum after the lecture for the Opening Reception of Picturing Nature.
