Student Ceramics at the Library

We at Carmichael Library have had a long association with Montevallo's talented student and faculty artists so we're especially excited to present this latest display of student art. Now through Thursday you can see the work of Scott Meyer's student artists in the library foyer.

Students taking Dr. Meyer's advanced ceramics (ART325) class have not only expanded their skills on the pottery wheel, but have also taken a bold approach for students at their level. Writes Dr. Meyer, "It became evident that the group was capable of progressing along a single line of thought for the entire course. Therefore, the pieces displayed here attempt to move a single concept along as a progression from piece to piece." Meyer adds, "Most professional artists work in this fashion, but students at this level in their training typically do not gain the opportunity. This group of young artists is a rare exception."

Thanks to Scott Meyer and his students for allowing us to display their work here in the library. For those who can't come by and see this work we now have photos on our Facebook Fan Page.
