November 6, 2019

This exhibition features work by Will Preman, the 2019 studio-art artist-in-residence.

A multidisciplinary artist currently working in Philadelphia. Preman earned a BFA in ceramics and art history from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2012 and an MFA at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. He has participated in residencies at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, Urban Culture Project in Kansas City and the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington, and serves as ceramics production assistant for BDDW, an internationally recognized design and fabrication company and as owner/designer of Yum Yum Ceramics. He had recently exhibited at Snyderman-Works Galleries, Automat Collective Gallery, and Millersville University. Preman's work focuses on details that make objects or events special, strange or humorous. These visuals come from all aspects of his life, including childhood memories, daily routines, imagination and the work of other artists. This program is made possible through the gracious support of college trustee and alumna Sylvia J. Smith, class of 1973.

This exhibition will continue through November 23, 2019. Gallery hours: Tuesday-Friday, 3-5 p.m., Saturday, 2-5 p.m.
