Sculptor discusses creative process

Artist Jill Downen will be speaking about her work featured in the Olson Gallery.

The Bethel University Olson Art Gallery will be hosting award-winning sculptor Jill Downen for an artist talk event at 6 p.m. Nov. 14 in the Eastlund Room before moving to the gallery.

Downen investigates the relationship between architecture and the human body through media, such as graphite, ink, and paper in the three dimensional form. She will be explaining her creative process for her installation titled “Selections from Three Dimensional Sketchbook,” displayed in the Olson Gallery. Students will ask Downen questions following her talk while getting a closer look at her work.

“Since her work is fairly minimalistic, I’m looking forward to hearing the meaning she has behind it and how it interacts with the space around it,” graphic design minor Josh Raabe said.

Following the event, the Art and Design Department will provide finger sandwiches, brownies and refreshments.
