Visiting Artist Lecture with Ian M. Petrie

Date: 

Monday, November 21, 2016, 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Location: 

Ceramics Program, 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

Presented by: Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard

Join us for a lecture from emerging talent Ian M. Petrie who is currently the Artist in Residence at the Worcester Center for Crafts in Worcester, MA.

Petrie's exquisite illustrative and narrative ceramics turn utilitarian ware on it's head. Petrie is an artist hell-bent on the synthesis of ceramics (or: “pottery") and sequential art (or: “comics”) and will discuss how he achieves this in his contemporary ceramic work.

This lecture is free and open to the public. To RSVP, email kking@fas.harvard.edu.

Artist Bio:

Ian M. Petrie is a Massachussetts-based artist hell-bent on the synthesis of ceramics (or: “pottery") and sequential art (or: “comics”). Originally from Minnesota, he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Minnesota in 2013. In 2014, Ian was selected for an Artist’s Residency at the Northern Clay Center and since then has continued to show his work in exhibitions across the country. Ian is currently an Artist in Residence at the Worcester Center for Crafts and spends his time making pots when he is sick of the soul-crushing neatness of paper/ink, and drawing comics when he can no longer stand the sight of an endless barrage of dinnerware.
