The event, sponsored by the Departments of Art and Art History and the Hartwick College Clay Club, will be held this Wednesday, March 6 at 6 p.m. in the Anderson Center for the Arts, Room 138, on the Hartwick College campus. A free, open demonstration will also be held on Thursday, March 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Ceramics Studio of the Anderson Center for the Arts Building.

New York City artist Matt Nolen was trained as a painter and architect, and is currently working on sculptural, architectural installations using ceramics and other components.

According to his artist statement, "As a painter, storyteller and architect, ceramics provides the means by which I can marry my loves: the painted surface, the three dimensional form and narrative content. Ceramics gives me the language to communicate my stories to a world audience."
