Several pottery pieces by Artist Lora Rust

Lora Rust: Quilts, Copper, and Candles

Exhibition: Thursday, October 3, 6-7pm
McCrary Gallery, Murphey Art Building


Lora Rust has an eye for elegance, fluidity and movement. Working in porcelain, her signature technique is a process of pushing the surface of the clay. She carefully textures each piece with her personally designed wooden tools, creating lush patterns with graceful, flowing lines. The designs and patterns found in Gothic Architecture mixed with the fluidity of the Art Nouveau period are strong influences in her work. Inspiration from textiles and fashion design provides movement to the texture on the form. She finishes each piece with beautiful glazes and captivating soda-fired color schemes that uniquely highlight the surface. Free and open to the public.

 


Three paintings of women from the She tells a story exhibition.

She Tells A Story:
Portraits from Wesleyan’s Collection

Porter Family Memorial Fine Arts Building, West Gallery
August 22 through December 20, 2019

Wesleyan has a choice collection that spans from a 15th century Italian Renaissance altarpiece to an Andy Warhol silkscreen. This exhibition highlights portraits of women: alumnae, friends of the college, beloved professors, donors, commissioned portraits and friends of the artists. The paintings and drawings capture all the  complexities of a contemporary woman’s life. The styles range from American realist to highly stylized layered portraits. View the paintings and read the stories of the artists and their subjects.
