Acclaimed sculptor Shayla Marsh has a few of her pieces on display through Feb. 7 in Tennessee Tech’s Joan Derryberry Art Gallery. The display concludes with a reception and lecture to be held Feb. 7 at 4:30 p.m. in the Derryberry Art Gallery.
Marsh is currently the post-graduate teaching resident at West Virginia University’s Ceramic Production Facility and her sculpture has been exhibited both regionally and nationally. She aims to “elicit a visual exploration of form and structure” in her work. She intentionally manipulates layering, impressions, shadows and multiples to prompt viewers to ask questions about the implications of those effects in their own lives.
The event is made possible by Center Stage, a series of events, guest artists, lectures and performances which aim to promote better understanding of the fine arts and diverse cultural perspectives. It is made possible by Tennessee Tech’s general education fund.
The event is free and open to the public.
