Gulf Coast State College will host its Second Annual Ceramics Symposium. The theme this year is “Word and Object”. The symposium will be held in Panama City, Florida, from April 15-17, 2016 in the Amelia Tapper Center in the Department of Visual And Performing Arts. This is a great opportunity for attendees to learn from a diverse group of professional artists. The artist/presenters include Ben Carter, Carole Epp, Magda Gluszek, and Jill Foote-Hutton.
Together they will share the ways story impacts and informs their creative process, studio output, and their efforts to capture the contemporary story of American Ceramics. During the Artist Demonstrations the audience will see a variety of construction methods while panelist will cover topics including: narrative as a leaping off point for form and decoration, the power of the frozen moment in sculpture, the vessel as a format for stories in the round, and development of character iconography.
The symposium will consist of interactive workshops, lectures, panel topic discussions, demonstrations and the exhibition, “Raconteurs”, on display from March 7 through the end of the symposium.
