Cal Lane

Hand cut lace out of steel shovels. She uses a plasma torch (which we have here at Georgetown, if you take sculpture you will learn how to use it)

A normal wheelbarrow cut into lace.

She also uses the cut steel pieces as stencils to make dirt lace works. Make sure to check out her work.

If you have not heard the name before make sure to check out her work. She can do some amazing things with simple tools. Check out her site HERE
you can even see older works that show her progression.

Two great art openings Friday!

Georgetown College presents two great exhibitions for Homecoming opening this Friday!

First, join us in the Cochenour Gallery (located in the LRC) any time between 12 and 2 for "Coming Home...a retrospective of the home economics major." Support the students from Curatorial Studies (Hannah Snider, Rebecca Redding, Stephanie Boxx, Cortney Thorn, Angelina McCoy, Ashley Mitchell, Nick Wagner, Megan Sauter, Matt Thompson), enjoy some dainty delights courtesy of GC alum Amanda Hervey, and learn about the former Home Ec major.

Later, "Georgetown College Art Alumni Exhibition" opens in the Anne Wright Wilson Gallery (art building on the corner of College and Mulberry streets). The opening reception will last from 5-7 (just before Songfest!) and all are invited to join us for a variety of art, food, and an art department reunion.

Both exhibitions will run through November, 13th but you won't want to miss either of these spectacular opening receptions!
