What is it like to stretch as an artist? What does it mean to take on a new challenge and work with a new space? How do you attach ceramic knobs onto a wall in a Fibonacci spiral? Liz James will be on hand to talk about her new exhibit at the Duluth Art Institute: Borrowed Essence on Thursday, October 21 at 6pm. 

"Our artist dialogues are a wonderful way of connecting and engaging with our local culture in a meaningful way. It is really fun to peek behind the finished product and dig into both the technical process and thought process that went into putting together an exhibit" says Anne Dugan, curator at the Duluth Art Institute.

Liz James is a ceramics artist and is a professor in the Art and Design department at UMD. In Borrowed Essence she has entered the world of installation art.  Over 300 pieces grace the walls of the Art Institute, referencing cycles in nature and our own human perceptions and interpretations of those systems. Join Liz and other art enthusiasts to explore the medium of ceramics and the art of installation.
