AT THE LEWISTOWN ART CENTER
IN SEPTEMBER - PAIGE WRIGHT CERAMICS ARTIST
The Lewistown Art Center welcomes Paige Wright and her exhibition of work titled, "People and Places,” an exploration of the human figure in clay. Paige discovered clay at a young age at an after-school class in Portland, Oregon, and enjoys the access to both clay and fulfillment in the ceramic process.
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 yearlong residency. Paige researched portraiture and the avenues of self-perception for her Masters in Fine Arts at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio in 2012. Paige's 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.Paige’s work, a collection of “People and Places,” is sure to shock and thrill, as she grapple with interior motivations and external forces that are present within a singular human face.
Thank you to the Central Montana Medical Center for sponsoring this show.
