Art Talk with Demonstrating Artist: Magda Gluszek
Kimball Art Center is excited to have sculptor, Magda Gluszek, lead a two-day demonstration in the Kimball Clay Studio. After her first demonstration day, Magda will put the clay aside and dive into a discussion about her practice and artistic process.
Magda Gluszek lives in Lakeside, Arizona, where she is art faculty and gallery director at Northland Pioneer College. Magda received her MFA from the University of Florida. She has been an artist in residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN, Roswell Art Center West in Roswell, GA, Skopelos Foundation for the Arts in Greece and at La Fragua in Belalcazar, Spain. Magda was an Invited Artist at the 2010 Figurative Association Symposium at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts and a 2011 NCECA Emerging Artist. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
The ways in which we create our self-presentations tell a narrative that is sometimes louder than (and often in conflict with) what we might say about ourselves if prompted verbally to tell our “story.” These constructions are the types of narrations that I am most drawn to expressing in my sculpture. They unwittingly reveal aspects of our personalities that we might not always be aware of, or prepared to share. Sometimes these stories are very individual expressions, at other times they reflect the narrative of our collective culture. They alternate between performance and truth.
