Table Pieces RECEPTION May 29, 5-9PM A board and four legs is a table, function and design meant to be used. Add created objects: human, animal, insect, demons of the dark made from gemstones and pearls, marble paste, gold and silver and nails and wire and rocks. The resulting forms speak of the human condition, the joy of dance, the unseen living creatures that inhabit our lives, and the beauty of stones under our feet. Each work, when placed on a table, can stimulate thought and conversation, yet each remains animate in the dark as we dream. 2019/2020 PRINTMAKING ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

INSIGHT Art Talk: June 1, 7PM

RECEPTION May 29, 5-9PM

This exhibit is a continuation of Dayon Royster’s pfashən-uhble naan-sints series where he uses phonetics to playfully focuses on an array of topics such as accessibility, bias, context, information, research, rules and truth. This second installment will touch on those same themes but will explore new themes such as moral superiority, the culpability of society at large, and the pros and cons of individuality.

Michael McCaffery |

Family Album

INSIGHT Art Talk: May 27, 7PM

RECEPTION May 29, 5-9PM

Several years ago, he returned home to the house where he grew up. Since that time, he has been creating paintings, drawings and photographs of his 81-year-old father. Recehntly, Michael noticed a shift in his work. He’s become fascinated with the Family Albums that his mother kept while she was alive. In an attempt to connect with a past he often felt left out of, he worked to re-record and study these memories the best way he know how; with paint. Digging through the remains of these albums has informed a painting process that oscillates between accurate visual representation and invented abstract forms. Shapes come together, forms materialize….then fall apart. As this process unfolds he desires to create a layered accumulation of paint and memories, a woven tapestry that captures a deeper and holistic view of his past and present.

JUNE 26 - JULY 25 2019/2020 CERAMICS ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

Ashlyn Pope |

A Portentous Haul

INSIGHT Art Talk: July 9, 7PM

RECEPTION June 26, 5-9PM

Dive into cultural identity in this exhibition of thrown and handbuilt ceramic vessels.

The Lawrence Arts Center Gallery will be filled with works inspired by various ceramic storage vessels blended with elements of sweetgrass baskets, an art tradition of her Gullah ancestry.

Divine Juried Exhibition June 19 - July 25 RECEPTION June 26, 5-9PM

A juried group exhibition, Divine, is comprised of artworks submitted from artists throughout the United States. The exhibition will be held in conjunction with the 2020 Free State Festival.

Join us to explore the mysteries of the night through visual, dance, and performing art. Light up the page with bioluminescent fireflies and explore the constellations in an installed planetarium. Defy all your newfound knowledge of sleeping and dreaming as you stay up and tell stories by the campfire about nocturnal creatures, both real and imagined. We’ll unpack the scientific mysteries of the earth, sun, moon, and stars. When slumber finally beckons you, explore Aboriginal Dreamtime artwork and American Indian night folklore to create vivid works of art connected to longstanding cultures. The night time is the right time for some exciting artwork!

Spend a week using applied engineering to build a variety of sculptures both outside and in an art studio. The Lawrence Arts Center is collaborating with City Playcorps’ Adventure Playground to help students design within parameters, create ephemeral and lasting sculptures, and utilize collaboration and critical thinking to build works of their own choice. Each day will focus on a shared Physics/Art principle in order to explore the many ways of engineering sculptures; build your essential 3D language as we focus on Material, Mass, Space, Center of Gravity, and Movement. Engineers in age groups will split time outside practicing and learning through creative play.

Welcome to a world of sonic awesomeness! Explore everything about music from the way our ears hear it to how it is composed to which instruments make which sounds.

Cardboard Arcade

Secret Life of Trees

Alicia Kelly Erdin Schultz-Bever Katie Swan Donna Jo Harkrider

Rachel Johnson Erdin Schultz-Bever Rachel Van Wagoner Katie Alldritt

This entire week is devoted to creating a playable cardboard arcade in the lobby. Each student will work on their own or with friends to create a kinetic sculpture that can be a part of an arcade installation at the end of the week. STEAM concepts focus on the forces, motion, and engineering that ensure each game works. Using the backdrop of the 1980s, artwork will be big, bold, brash, and definitely neon. Whether you’re creating Hot Shot basketball, an analog Nintendo game, or something the world has never seen, we’ll work through problems and craft solutions in this design/build workshop styled class. We’ll have a Cardboard Arcade opening with tickets, prizes, and playable artwork on the closing Friday of class. It’s on like Donkey Kong!

Now more than ever, it’s important to listen to the trees. Dig deep into the forest and find out about root systems, lichen and moss, seedpods, and all the elements of trees that make them so fascinating. In dance, visual, and performing arts we will explore the forest ecosystem looking into the animals, insects, and plants that live within the trees. Don’t be surprised if we happen upon some mythical creatures such as fairies, gnomes, and other mystical forest dwellers as we investigate the science and magic of a forest.

Box City Tokyo

Wild Life

Alicia Kelly Erdin Schultz-Bever Traci Bunkers Katie Alldritt

Leah Towle Rachel Johnson Traci Bunkers Mariah Seifert

Konnichi wa, Tokyo! Explore the long cultural history and architectural beauty of Japan while planning, designing, and engineering a kid-sized, cardboard box metropolis. Students apply their imaginations to fill in the city with artwork, culture, and function. Using Tokyo as an example, we will look at urban planning and design and how it shapes the world we live in. Students gain an appreciation for shape, form, and proportion as they apply these principles to their expanding city. The real magic happens as students take ownership of their structures, identities, and culture within the city. The cardboard city is installed in the lobby for all to enjoy with a public opening on the last day of camp that aligns with Final Friday.

Explore animals and ecosystems across the world! Trace the taxonomy of wildlife and where these beautiful creatures live in a weeklong animal extravaganza. In performing arts and dance, students will move, script, and perform work that emphasizes the importance of protecting wildlife. Learn to move like animals as you study the aspects of their lives. STEAM principles include biology, animal preservation, endangered species, and ecosystems. In visual arts we will work together to bring 2D and 3D animal art together in a giant interlinking preserve in the lobby. Come on all you wild things, let’s get together and show the world how important our animals are!
