Program Pics: “Forming Forerunners” with Jeff McGee

Jeff gave a brilliant lecture Friday before last, and we’d like to thank him and all those who came out! Jeff ushered us through centuries of forming practices from all over the world. We examined Egyptian funerary objects, Grecian adornments, Indian vessels, Japanese¬†jizai okimono¬†articulated sculptures, Peruvian llama effigies, and so much more. Jeff also introduced us to many contemporary artists, like Catherine Grisez, Yas and Tadakazu Tanaka, and Miel-Margarita Paredes. Seeing the modern resonances of these hand-formed ancient objects was both fascinating and inspiring. Thanks again Jeff!
