"Out of the Fire," an exhibit of ceramics and sculpture by two Frostburg State University senior visual arts students, Steve Weslow and Windy M. Kroll, will open Friday, Dec. 15, at 7 p.m. in the Stephanie Ann Roper Gallery on the FSU Campus. The opening reception is free and open to the public.
Weslow and Kroll have similar styles, both working mostly in functional ceramics, but they have different sculptural sides, in displays ranging from traditional forms to science fiction characters.
Weslow, a resident of Frostburg, Md., will display his three-dimensional metal and clay sculptures, as well as his functional ceramics. His inspiration comes from nature, marine life and his own outlandish original combinations. After his December graduation, he plans to continue creating ceramics and sculptures, with the goal of owning his own studio and business, possibly in Maine.
Kroll, originally from Gaithersburg, Md., will display a series of functional ceramics, as well as her large vessels and metal tables. She is inspired by functional objects used in everyday life. After graduation, she plans to study massage therapy at Allegany College of Maryland, with the goal of owning a massage therapy business, as well as the intention of continuing to produce ceramics.
Following the Friday night reception, the exhibit will be open 1 to 4 p.m. daily from Sunday, Dec. 17, to Wednesday, Dec. 20.
FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. To request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office, call (301) 687-4102, TDD (301) 687-7955.
