Rovin Open Late for Artist Talk
Join us as 2017 Michigan Mud featured artists Benjamin Lambert and Clayton Keyes discuss their journey through the art world. Both Benjamin and Clayton will highlight concepts, processes, failures and successes they have encountered along the way. Rovin will be open late for this free event, no registration necessary.
Benjamin Lambert builds ceramic figures and animals that are often uncanny and humorous. His works discuss environmental problems, typically related to the aquatic. Current day water, ecosystem and food management issues are fair game for scrutiny and exploration. He is currently a visiting assistant professor at Alma College in Alma, Michigan.
Clayton Keyes is a ceramic sculptor specializing in rendering the human form. He creates work that is meant to indelibly touch the viewer through communicating an emotional narrative. His current body of work, "Identify" is an exploration of the fluid spectrum of human gender identities as experienced in the current cultural climate. Clayton is the head of Ceramics Program and Chair of the Art Department at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah.
