Lecture: Traditional Japanese Metal Inlay
5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. | Upton Hall Room 230 | Permalink
Professor Hara Satoshi, from Kanazawa College of Art in Japan, will present a visiting artist lecture featuring his contemporary metalwork designs. We are honored to have the opportunity to host Satoshi as he shares his mastery of metal and the art of traditional Japanese metal inlay. Japanese metal inlay is a process steeped in the rich history of metalsmithing and perfected in the ornament of the sword guard used by samurai. It is a process that continues to be explored today in the art of contemporary metalwork. This event is funded by the Dr. Margaret E. Bacon Visiting Visual Artist Series Fund, the School of Arts and Humanities, Metals/Jewelry Program, Students Involved in the Art of Metalsmithing funded by Unied Students Government and the Design Department.

What fits into the palm of your hand and has eight pages, a hard cover, and not a word? A visual book, sometimes called an artist's book! Come and see examples of visual books created by students in Carol Townsend's Introduction to Two-Dimensional Design class. Topics of the books include time, ballet, ancient travel, op art, and dance. These selected pieces will be on display until October 12 at which time they will be replaced by a second group of these special visual treats. Viewable during regular library hours.
