ATHENS, W.Va. - The Concord University Department of Art will be hosting the work of renowned West Virginia sculpture artist Brett Kern until March 19, 2013. 
 
Kern's playful ceramic sculptures are on display in the Arthur Butcher Gallery which is located in the Alexander Fine Arts Center. His pieces are available for viewing from 12 noon to 4 p.m. on Monday – Friday until March 18.
Special viewing is available upon request.
 
Kern's artist reception and lecture will be held on Monday, March 18 from 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the Arthur Butcher Gallery. His artist demonstration will be held in the Alexander Fine Arts Building, (Room A200) on Tuesday, March 19 from 9 a.m. - 12 noon. The Alexander Fine Arts Center is located on Concord University's Athens Campus at 1000 Vermillion Street.
      
Kern is a skilled sculpture artist. His medium of choice is ceramic and he uses a "slip-casting" technique and commercial glazes. His ceramic sculptures are vibrantly and brightly colored with gold and platinum accents.
      
Some of his captivating subject matter includes: Inflatable dinosaurs, foam fingers, woodchucks and whoopee cushions. He explains, "In my work, clay is meant as a metaphor for permanence and value but also, fragility."
      
Kern's work is well known in the state of West Virginia. He is an instructor at Davis and Elkins College. In addition, he holds an MFA in Ceramics from West Virginia University.
      
All of the events are open to public as well as Concord faculty, students and staff. Everyone is encouraged to take advantage of this art enriching opportunity.
