Local Ceramist Liz Bishop to Exhibit Works at Whitworth

Bishop Pendant"Evolving Truth," an art exhibit featuring the work of Spokane ceramist and 1994 Whitworth alumna Liz Bishop, will be on display Oct. 27-Nov. 25 in the Koehler Gallery, located in the Fine Arts Building at Whitworth College. Gallery hours are 8 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free.

An artist's-reception will be held Tuesday, Oct. 28, from 5-7 p.m. in the Koehler Gallery. Bishop will discuss her work in a lecture, "Transforming Passages," at 6 p.m. during the reception. The lecture will take place in Room 200 of the Fine Arts Building. For more information, please call (509) 777-3258.

Bishop, who currently works at the Spokane Arts School, is displaying her work in the Koehler Gallery to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of her senior art exhibition at Whitworth. "Evolving Truth" will feature Bishop's fused glass, metal and Raku-fired ceramic wall pieces. The exhibit will also include three pieces she displayed in her senior art exhibition, which will serve as points of contrast with her more current pieces and demonstrate the exhibit's theme of evolution and growth.

"Her work is unique because she creates beautiful abstract designs with fired and glazed ceramic pieces," says Whitworth Assistant Professor of Art Scott Kolbo. "They are almost like paintings, but they have a tactile and three-dimensional feeling that makes them unique."

Located in Spokane, Wash., Whitworth is a private, liberal arts college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The college enrolls 2,200 students in more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs.
