GODFREY – Lewis and Clark Community College’s Visiting Artist Lecture Series, sponsored by 1st MidAmerica Credit Union, continues with ceramist Susan Bostwick at 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 in the Hatheway Cultural Center’s Ann Whitney Olin Theatre.
The land inspires Bostwick’s art and she enjoys the challenge of problem solving that working with clay presents. She is drawn to Pre-Columbian Moche cultures, which had a passion for drawing. She uses a process of layering materials, content and techniques to create each unique piece.
Bostwick holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and received her undergraduate degree from Webster University, St. Louis. Bostwick’s work has been featured in a number of publications, including “The Yixing Effect” and “500 Animals,” according to her website,
“Susan is an exceptional ceramist who creates tantalizing and playful earthenware works with great craftsmanship,” L&C Art Coordinator Chris Brennan said. “She has won several awards, taught at SIUE, as well as other schools and organizations, and was a co-founder of the Alton/Edwardsville studio tour, ARTEAST. We are anxiously looking forward to her artist presentation.”
These lectures are free and open to the public. For more information about the series and other upcoming artists, visit
