TWU West Gallery presents ‘The Ossuary Project’

10/9/07


DENTON — An opening reception for “The Ossuary Project” and a public lecture by the artist Blake Williams will be held Tuesday, Oct. 16 in the Texas Woman’s University West Gallery, located in the Fine Arts Building at Oakland Street and Pioneer Circle on the university’s Denton campus.

The lecture will be held at 12:15 p.m., with the opening reception scheduled from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.  Both events are free and open to the public.  The exhibition, scheduled to run through Nov. 15, also is free and open to the public.  The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  For more information, call (940) 898-2530.

“The Ossuary Project,” Blake Williams’ solo exhibition, is presented as part of the “Women Playing with Fire” series.  Multiple fragments of a variety of animal and human bones made of porcelain are arranged in patterns covering the walls throughout the gallery space.  Through her work, Ms. Williams strives to provoke an awareness of the sacred relationship between humans, animals and survival.

Ms. Williams currently is an assistant professor and ceramics program co-coordinator at Michigan State University in East Lansing.  She received her master of fine arts degree from Louisiana State University and her bachelor of fine arts from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.  She has participated in numerous juried, group and invitational exhibitions.
