The Dodd faculty comprises an array of artists working in a variety of disciplines such as Benjamin Britton a large-scale abstract painter who provokes themes of adventure and awe; or Marni Shindelman a photographer who relies on geo-location to determine her often dead-pan photographs; or Jon Swindler an artist who investigates the process of printmaking through the creation of 3-dimensional collage sculpture. This is just a small example of the exemplary artists and researchers that comprise the Dodd faculty.
The UGA Ceramic Student Organization will hold a spring pottery sale. Work on sale will include sculpture, teapots, mugs, boxes, plates, vases and bowls. Also to be held April 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.'
All work was made by ceramic students or faculty. Prices will range from $10 and up.
Proceeds from the ceramic sale will go to support a student educational field trip to a national ceramic conference, as well as to help bring resident artists to campus.
In these dynamic talks, this year's MFA candidates will each have three minutes to give attendees a glimpse into their work. They then take to the galleries to engage directly with visitors. Co-sponsored by the Lamar Dodd School of Art.
