Grad Student Lecture, Visiting Artist and more!


School of Art graduate student Burke Jam will present a public lecture in conjunction with his UC Gallery exhibition currently on display.  Join us in the UC Theatre to hear Burke talk about his latest installation.


The School of Art is very excited to host visiting artist Tip Toland :

Tip is one of the nation’s foremost figurative ceramic sculptors, earning numerous awards for her work, including a 2009 Jean Griffith Pottery Northwest Grant, the 2004 Virginia Groot Award and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship Award in 1986.  She has exhibited extensively throughout the United States, with one-woman shows at Barry Friedman Gallery in New York City, 2012, and the Bellevue Art Museum in 2008. Regina Hackett of the Seattle Post Intelligencer, in a review of the Bellevue Art Museum exhibition describes her work: “Tip Toland’s life-sized stoneware figures carry their weight lightly.  None of her stunted children, naked elderly or solitary middle-aged is bogged down by class, oddity or circumstance… (her sculptures are) transformed by material evidence of inner light.”  Just two weeks ago, Tip was featured as a Demonstration Artist at the annual NCECA conference in Seattle.

Tip will present a lecture on her work on Tuesday, April 17 at 6:10 pm in Social Sciences 356.  She will also be demonstrating her techniques on Wednesday April 18 from 12-5pm in the Ceramics studio in the Art Annex.  Ms. Toland’s visit is made possible due to the generous contribution of the Jim and James Dew Visiting Artist Fund.  These events are free and open to the public.


School of Art Graduate Students Brett Hargesheimer and Jack Metcalf will be presenting a “One night only, never seen before, installation/spectacle” at the Missoula Art Museum’s ARTINI event.  Be sure to bring blank apparel to be hand printed with fresh local designs!
