Dr. Carolyn Albracht, Assistant Professor of Art Education, explores the idea of “living in the corner of nowhere.” Her artwork examines the juxtaposition of urban influences on rural life at a time when mobility and communication allows seamless interaction. Albracht uses watercolor, Prismacolor marker, pigment liners, embroidery thread, collage, and acrylic paint to create inquisitive imagery.

The artwork of Sarah Lemmon, Associate Professor of Sculpture, draws on the multifaceted relationships humans have with the natural world. Meaning is embedded into the art using texture, repetition, careful material selection, and contrast.

Francine Fox, Assistant Professor of Art, Painting and Drawing, uses symbolism for a fanciful look at science, politics, religion and culture. Influential concepts range from new research on the capabilities of spider eyes to the fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral. Her artwork uses digital painting processes and traditional mediums.

Through the printmaking process, Meghan O’Connor, Associate Professor of Print Media, uses animal imagery to probe the darker side of human nature.

Leroy von Glan, Adjunct Professor of Ceramics and WSC alumnus, shares his artistic teapot formations. His approach delves into the teapot’s transition from original conception to today’s artistic perception. Von Glan likes to reimagine tried-and-true methods into new ceramic visions.
