calendar icon05 Nov 2020
Lincoln, Neb.--“Making History,” which showcases the work of Associate Professor of Art Margaret Bohls’ Making History ceramics class, will be on display at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Eisentrager-Howard Gallery from Nov. 9-20.
The gallery is located in the center of the first floor of Richards Hall on the university’s city campus at Stadium Drive and T streets.
The class, composed of undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Art, Art History & Design, studied the history of ceramic art by not only researching, but also recreating historical ceramic objects.
The goal for this exhibition is to create a physical space in which one can explore the relationships that emerge between ceramic objects across time periods and cultures, from the 6th millennium BCE up to the mid 20th century, including objects made in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Americas.
In contemplating these objects—their forms and surfaces, symbology, construction techniques, and intended uses—we are conversing with the history of human beings: their daily lives, beliefs, customs, and sacred ceremonies.
The participating students include:
Allison Achtenhagen, undergraduate (B.F.A.)
Allison Arkush, graduate (M.F.A.)
Rayetta Benson-Redinbaugh, undergraduate (B.F.A.)
Andrew Bissonnette, graduate (M.F.A.)
Katie Bosley, graduate (M.F.A.)
Tyra Carstens, undergraduate (B.F.A.)
Dehmie Dehmlow, graduate (M.F.A.)
Max Henderson, graduate (M.F.A.)
Grace Orwen, undergraduate (B.F.A.)
Hannah Petri, undergraduate (B.F.A.)
Taylor Sijan, graduate (M.F.A.)
Amythest Warrington, graduate (M.F.A.)
Admission to the gallery is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 12:30-4:30 p.m. or by appointment for groups larger than 10.
Until further notice, all students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors are required to comply with current CDC safety guidelines (social distancing and facial coverings) in response to COVID-19.
