You are invited to “Planetary Waves”, an exhibition of panneau de verre and fused glass works by Kristin Thielking and Lisa Beth Robinson, November 6-30, 2015 at the Dare County Arts Council, 300 Queen Elizabeth Avenue, Manteo, NC 27954 (252) 473-5558 dareartsinfo@gmail.com

Kristin will also be a visiting artist with us from November 11-17, giving an artist’s talk in Jenkins 1220 (our auditorium) at 6:30 pm on Thursday, November 12th, and teaching a glass fusing workshop over the weekend of November 14-15.


Kristin Thielking’s Workshop

Dates: Saturday & Sunday, November 14-15
Times: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Location: Jenkins Fine Arts Center, J-106 Ceramics Studio (signs will be posted)
Cost: $100.00
Registration: robinsonl@ecu.edu

Visiting artist lecture at ECU: Thursday, November 12, Jenkins 1220, 6:30 pm will enable participants to explore drawing and printmaking techniques on glass and create two finished fused-glass pieces. Glass allows for the layering of imagery and text in a way that is quite different than working with paper or canvas. Working with fused glass also provides the opportunity to explore transparency and the way light can activate the layers, as well as create work that can withstand the elements and be exhibited outside or be integrated into an architectural space. Because of the short nature of the workshop, we will provide prepared silkscreens with imagery and text that relate to the theme micro/macro that participants can choose from and combine to create unique works. Thielking will also discuss the technical side of working with kiln-glass and how to use a traditional programmable ceramic kiln to fire glass. No experience necessary.

MFA 2007 Painting Alumna Jennifer Drinkwater Helps Iowa Towns Build Community, Identity And Economy Through Art


“AMES, Iowa — From colorful quilts in Main Street shops to gilded oil paintings in big city museums, Jennifer Drinkwater sees it all as art. There are no hierarchies, she says, because all art is a creative expression of culture. And as Drinkwater assumes a newly created position at Iowa State University, her expansive definition of art is serving the people of Iowa well.

This summer, Drinkwater was named assistant professor of art and visual culture and community art extension specialist. The outreach-oriented position was created under the ISU president’s high-impact hire initiative and is one of only a handful nationwide. It places Drinkwater on a mission to help Iowa communities apply art in ways that “improve the fabric” of their towns.

Already she is coordinating art camps for small-town teens, nudging community arts projects off starting blocks, spearheading knit-bombing in Ames, establishing a local artist residency at Design West in Sioux City and assisting ISU Extension and Outreach with a Latino migration cultural project in Perry….”
