SEPTEMBER GALLERY SHOW
PAIGE WRIGHT - PEOPLE & PLACES
This month the Lewistown Art Center welcomes Paige Wright and her exhibition titled, People and Places, an exploration of the human figure in clay by Paige Wright. After attending the University of Montana for her Bachelors in Fine Arts in 2006, Paige participated in two Artist-in-Residency programs, the Carbondale Clay Center's long-term program and the Red Lodge Clay Centers year long residency.
Paige researched portraiture and the avenues of self-perception for her Masters in Fine Arts at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio in 2012. Her figurative practice has led her to work in both the International Ceramic Studio in Kecskemet Hungary and Guldagergaard: International Ceramic Research Center in Denmark.
Currently, Paige is instructing ceramics courses at the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts while maintaining a personal studio in Portland, Oregon.
