Lauren Fensterstock lecture at the Dodd

Monday, September 29, 2014 - 10:48am

The Lamar Dood School of Art welcomes Maine-based installation artist Lauren Fensterstock to campus for a lecture on Sept. 30 at 5:30 pm:

Based in Portland, Maine, Fensterstock is an artist, writer and curator whose work was the subject of a recent major solo exhibition at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, where she filled four rooms with cut paper flowers to create an immersive environment, and another at the Contemporary Austin in Austin, Texas. Her work is held in public and private collections in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

In her UGA lecture, Fensterstock plans to show examples from her work from the previous 15 years, a mixture of sculpture and installation.

"I'm going to share some of the research that I do-my work tends to come out of a lot of reading, and my interest in history," Fensterstock said. "So I'll talk about some of the historical references that inspire my work and then talk about my process and how my research and the making come together in these installations."

Fensterstock studied at the Parsons School of Design and SUNY New Paltz, and her background in metalsmithing and jewelry continue to play a role in her work.
