‘Under My Skin’ features ceramics


Fri, Jul 12th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

‘Under My Skin’ features ceramics by Duluth, Minn. artist Lenore Lampi in the Cornucopia Artist Spotlight at Lanesboro Arts Center.

The Spotlight opens with an artist reception on Saturday, July 27 from 6-8 pm and runs through August 25, 2013. The reception and the Spotlight are free and open to the public. At first glance, Lampi’s ceramic works are easily confused with real birch bark or dark rock surfaces.

Skillfully sculpting clay, Lampi transforms the medium to fool our eyes. In creating a new body of work for the ‘Under My Skin’ Spotlight, the artist ponders a metaphor: the skin of the birch tree outlasts the interior trappings. “How is this like or unlike our skin and its interior?” Lampi asks.

It has been said that we carry the minerals in us, our DNA from the geography from which we were born. With that said, ‘Under My Skin’ is a body of ceramic work that evokes the mineral surface of rock enhanced with ice. Lampi doesn’t use much bright color in her work, instead being drawn to earth tones and focusing on form and texture. “I feel a kinship with the stone of the Arrowhead region,” she says.

The Cornucopia Artist Spotlight serves to highlight the work of selected Juried Sales Gallery artists individually throughout the year. The Spotlight challenges artists to explore new methods and/or subject matter. The name ‘Cornucopia’ lives on in the Artist Spotlight program in honor of Lanesboro Arts Center founding members, and in the spirit of the coop of artists that created the energy for this arts center back in 1992.

The Lanesboro Arts Center gallery, at 103 Parkway Ave. N. in Lanesboro, Minn., is open seven days a week through October: Mon-Thurs 10-5, Fri-Sat 10-7, Sun 11-4.

Lanesboro Arts Center serves as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages. For more information contact 507-467-2446 / info@lanesboroarts.org / www.lanesboroarts.org.
