Art & Art History Summer Faculty Accolades 2022

Cathedral of Notre Dame, Reims, north flank c. 1713, BM Reims, XII a GF 26.

This summer, Dr. Jennifer M. Feltman presented papers (virtually) at two international conferences. In May, at Kalamazoo, Michigan’s 57th Annual International Congress on Medieval Studies, she presented “Visualizing Time: Analyzing and Documenting Layers of Polychromy on the Last Judgment Portal of Notre-Dame.” In July, at the International Medieval Congress 2022, hosted by the University of Leeds, Leeds, UK, she presented “The Post-Medieval Life of the Last Judgment Portal Sculptures at Reims Cathedral.”

Assistant Professor Wade MacDonald published an invited article, “Fractured Fabrication,” in the September/October issue of Pottery Making Illustrated. In it he writes about his use of digital fabrication tools and slip casting methods to create functional ceramics. Pottery Making Illustrated specializes in technical step-by-step instructions and how-to essays for ceramic artists and articles about digital techniques in ceramics are not commonplace.

MacDonald will also showcase his work in a group and a solo exhibition this fall. Two of his ceramic vases were accepted to the juried 30th Annual Strictly Functional Pottery National, September 17—November 5 at the Lancaster (Pennsylvania) Museum of Art. The annual event is recognized as one of the top ceramic exhibitions in the country. And, MacDonald will hold a solo exhibition, Lethal Lounge, at Ejecta Projects in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, on September 23—November 3. This exhibition will feature new mixed-media sculpture and wall work.
