Sculptor to speak

This season’s Visiting Artist Lecture Series continues next week with a presentation by Seattle-based sculptor John Grade.

Grade creates large-scale structures that he displays both in galleries and in the natural environment, where the effects of the elements transform the work over time.

For example, his piece “Seeps of Winter” was installed in Seattle’s Suyama Space in 2008; in April, it will be reassembled at the base of a glacier in the Cascade Mountains, where it will remain through the spring thaw.

He will speak Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. at Spokane Falls Community College, SUB, Lounges A/B, and at 7 p.m. at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture auditorium, and next Thursday at noon in Eastern Washington University’s Art Department Auditorium in Cheney.

Admission is free. For more information, call (509) 359-6651 or (509) 533-3746.
