Guest artist visits UCO to present workshop, lecture


Special to The Sun

EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma Department of Art will present an open-to-the-public lecture by guest artist Gina Adams from 5-6 p.m. Nov. 11 in UCO’s Education Building, Room 115.           

As an artist accomplished in the mediums of sculptures, ceramics, painting, printmaking and drawing, Adams’s lecture will focus on both her work and the use of encaustic paint.

Adams’s work has been exhibited throughout the nation and reflects Native American culture.    

“Her work targets the rediscovery of her cultural roots,” said Barbara Broadwell, associate professor of art.           

Adams is well versed in encaustic paint, an ancient medium that fuses color wax and resin to make a translucent and rich paint for sculptures.

She also will present a workshop on encaustic paint from noon-4:30 p.m. Nov. 11. Limited space is available.           

“I’ve taken a workshop with Gina before and in addition to being a gifted artist she is a thorough instructor,” Broadwell said.

Those interested in attending the workshop should contact Broadwell at bbroadwell@uco.edu.
