Where: Carleton College

Also make sure to check out In Between running September 18 – October 17, 2009 @the Carleton College Art Gallery


“In Between, the Art Gallery’s exhibition, pairs Kelly Connole with Beth Lo – Connole’s college ceramics teacher. Beth Lo explores her Chinese American heritage through installations of ceramic figures and recently, children’s books. Lo creates clay “kids” who embody both American and Asian stereotypes, and also reference the rich history of Asian ceramics. Lo, who is Professor of Art at the University of Montana, lists myriad sources of inspiration. “I enjoy investigating, celebrating and sometimes satirizing traditional Asian aesthetics, including calligraphy, origami, scrolls, Socialist Realist artwork, Chinese souvenirs and toys, the game of mahjong, as well as Ming and Tang dynasty ceramics.”
