The art department has been lucky enough to have Patrizio Travagli and his Golden Touch workshop in town. His aim is to give an object of memory a new meaning through guilding and display. I decided to guild my first ceramic head – an object that demonstrated to me the significance of artistic play.

UPCOMING EVENT

“Nervous Laughter: A Solo Exhibition by Morgan Bak”

stretched

Friday, August 7th, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

at The Machine Shop, 4 South Wasatch, Colorado Springs, CO

“The Machine Shop is excited to present the work of emerging artist, Morgan Bak. As a primarily self-taught ceramic sculptor, Morgan’s sculptures of warped, exaggerated facial features take on an uneasy quality. Facial expressions are a key tool in determining the status of one’s inner emotional state. This concept has fascinated Morgan, leading to highly-expressionistic faces as a common theme in her work. Join us for an opening featuring her resident work at the Machine Shop.

Morgan Bak is a senior studio art major at Colorado College and works with various mediums such as clay, ink, acrylic paint, woodcuts, drypoint, and etching (line, softground, aquatint) with a primary focus on ceramic sculpture, illustration, and printmaking.”
