Lecture by Ceramicist Wayne Higby, Friday May 23, 6pm

Free

Join the PAA on Friday, May 23, at 6pm for a lecture by celebrated ceramicist Wayne Higby, whose exhibition, Infinite Place: The Ceramic Art of Wayne Higby, is on view through August 3, 2014.

Higby is a consummately self-aware artist whose reflections on his own work are at once poetic, profound, and unassailable. The arc of his career tests one’s grasp of how mind, space, and landscape coalesce. Early ascension placed him at the forefront of the American ceramics movement during an era of explosive growth and originality. An innovator of raku-firing, Higby's iconic raku bowl forms made during the 1970s and 1980s are considered to be his signature works, although  technique has never taken primacy over content in his work. Join us to hear Higby discuss the breadth of his artistic practice as well as his equally important roles as educator, writer, and world traveler.
