The Bethany College Art Department is hosting a gallery exhibition by guest artist Stephanie Lanter through September 30 in the Mingenback Art Gallery. A closing reception will be held on September 30 from 2 to 4 p.m. with a gallery talk by the artist at 2:30 p.m.
The exhibit, titled “Inbox,” features mixed media sculpture, installation and drawings that explore the emotional and psychological nuances of virtual communication.
Lanter has been an artist and educator working in clay, fiber, and other media since 2000. Currently the Assistant Professor of Ceramics at Emporia State University, she previously taught at Washburn and Wichita State Universities. She was fortunate enough to be one of the founding resident artists at the Red Lodge Clay Center in Montana in 2006, and also has had residencies at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado and the Mendocino, California Arts Center. In 2004 she was the first Jentel/Archie Bray Foundation “Critic at the Bray” in Sheridan, Wyoming and Helena, Montana.
Along with exhibiting sculpture across the country, she has written for and been featured in journals such as Ceramics Monthly, and Ceramics, Art and Perception. In 2010, she received a Kansas Arts Commission Collaboration Grant to support the interdisciplinary installation, community outreach, and publication series, The Waiting Room Projects, an ongoing and internationally exhibited collaboration led by Marguerite Perret and in conjunction with Bruce Scherting, Robin Lasser, Sarah Smarsh, and others. She received an MFA from Ohio University in 2002 and a BA from Xavier University in 1998.
