Event description

Description

Join us for an inspiring lecture by Canadian born mixed media artist Czashka Ross. Her artistic practice spans more than forty-five years of actively painting, drawing, printmaking, papermaking and more. Czashka has travelled extensively and has lived primarily in the United States since earning a Masters of Fine Arts Degree from The Cranbrook Academy of Art. In between her studies at Cranbrook, she taught for a year at Purdue University and received a National Endowment for the Arts Apprenticeship Grant to work in at Twinrocker Handmade Paper Mill in Brookston, Indiana. After Cranbrook, Czashka pursued a post-graduate fellowship to research traditional western-style hand papermaking in 5 different European countries while living in France for a year.


Since the 1990’s, she has worked extensively at Peters Valley in various studios continuing her creative practice and transitioned into working figuratively and formally in her artwork. She is compelled to make art each and every day to explore persistent notions and themes in her work.

Czashka will discuss the body of work and the contemporary concepts that she explores in her studio practice. “in my mind’s eye, holding an object in my hand and turning it round and around until it is known. A snapshot of each view-then overlaying, transposing, reversing, pushing, pulling, lateral movement-an extended synthesis of the form in question”

She has completed several public art commissions and her work has been exhibited work in Europe, Canada, Japan, and the United States.

This lecture is part of a series of public lectures that Peters Valley School of Craft has mounted at the Pike County Public Library this year, made possible by the generosity of The Greater Pike Community Foundation's Richard L. Snyder Fund.
