Known for her dynamic, emotionally charged animal and human figures, 2018 Visiting Ceramic Artist Beth Cavener will give students a glimpse of how to tackle elements of gesture and expression with subtle shifts in line and form. Over the course of this three-day demonstration, Cavener will cover a range of practical technical information about working in clay as well as guide discussion on how we transfer ideas and meaning visually. Experience and learn about her unusual method of working on a monumental scale—starting with a solid mass of clay, often over 2,000 lbs., and then hollowing each part of the sculpture down to the skin—as it is made accessible to individuals at every level. Beth Cavener is a full-time professional studio artist. She received her BA in sculpture from Haverford College and her MFA from Ohio State University, and she has been an Artist in Residence at the Clay Studio in Philadelphia and the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana. Cavener’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including the Smithsonian and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and she teaches numerous workshops across the country. Thank you to the Nowlin Family Foundation for supporting our Visiting Ceramic Artist program.
