How to Sculpt a Head out of a Cube
Barbara Balzer’s academic and professional resume is impressive and diverse! As an international award-winning figurative ceramic artist, LeMoyne is honored to welcome Barbara as a Guest Artist Instructor for a special workshop, titled “How to Sculpt a Head out of a Cube,” which will be held on either October 2nd or October 9th, from 1-5pm at LeMoyne Arts education building, Studio D.
Barbara was awarded an M.F.A. in Sculpture from Florida State University College of Dance and Art. Her work began winning awards, at first locally, then regionally, then internationally. She has since exhibited work both nationally and internationally and conducted workshops and attended art residencies in both Europe and Asia. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Museo de Ceramica in Manises, Spain, the Yingge Museum of Ceramics in Taiwan, the Macon Museum of Art and Science in Georgia and Vero Beach Center for the Arts in Florida.
She considers herself one in a long line of sculptors of the human form, beginning with the anonymous maker of the Venus de Willendorf over 25,000 years ago. Barbara continues to make work in her Tallahassee studio, always in service of an idea.
