Reception & Lecture:
September 19, 5:30 p.m.
For this exhibition, Jim Tisnado presents installations of ceramic sculptures that reference the powerful influence of childhood memories. Often presented in multiples, the repetition of objects evokes the passage of time and an attempt to solidify the fleeting nature of memory. The impetus for each piece is a desire by the artist not only to reflect on his own relationship with his father but also to explore his own role as a parent. Tisnado is an Associate Professor at East Carolina University where he has taught in the ceramics area for ten years.
Exhibits made possible by the generous support of the William Hollis Visiting Artist Fund.
