Monthly Demo Meetings
William Jamieson DEMO ARTIST
October 1, 2019!
The Glenview Art League’s October Demo Artist for October is William Jamieson, a Ceramic Sculptor who specializes in the use of the “slab method”. His Modernist approach can best be seen in his post minimalist forms often described as “somewhere between architectural and sculptural.” Contrasting these works, Jamieson also creates an antithesis form – smooth, organic inspired, flowing, non-representational abstraction. Both of these directions highlight his expertise and innovation in slab method ceramics. As an artist and teacher, he enjoys sharing his knowledge and is committed to creating community for art education. He currently teaches at Oakton Community College, City Colleges of Chicago and Lillstreet Art Center. He has spoken nationally at the Foundations in Art: Theory and Education (FATE) Conference, exhibited his art work regionally and started several art centers including the recent opening of ‘Artspace’ in the Yorktown mall in Lombard, IL.
The October 1st demonstration will include step by step instruction as William creates one of his organic sculptures. Emphasis on structural design, aesthetic principles, and craftmanship will be explained as participants will see the inner workings of these unique and curious forms. Open display of clay materials, tools, techniques and insider tips will be discussed as he works from start to finish creating his art work.
Monthly Demo Meetings are held at the Glenview Park Center, 2400 Chestnut Avenue, Glenview, IL 60025 on the first Tuesday of February, March, May, September, October and November of 2019 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Meetings are FREE and open to the public. This event is ADA accessible.
