Class Collaborations featured in Benefit Art Auction

This year’s Art Auction features some amazing art and includes collaborative works created in some of our adult education classes!

The “Poetry in Print” class was co-taught this winter by Tonja Torgerson and Mary Wharff, a printmaker and a writer, respectively. This class created a hand bound book filled with student generated poetry. Each student hand set type for two of their own original poems and printed them to create truly one of a kind piece, called “2by10”.

“Pop-Up Paper Sculpture”, taught by Alicia Kelly this winter session, has a pop-up accordion book in the art auction. Each student worked on a separate page, utilizing all of the different pop up techniques they learned in class, to create a collaborative piece focused on Lawrence, KS, called “Unfolding Lawrence”.

Check out these works in the auction along with works by a number of our adult education instructors:

Carly Slade, Clare Doveton, Louis Copt, Matthew Lord, Kent Smith, Ken Bini, Neil Goss, Traci Bunkers, Andrew Cho, Dan Dakotas, Ann Dean, Thomas Huang, Alicia Kelly, Tressa Jones, Carly Kimbrough, Liza MacKinnon, Bailey Marable, Tyler Nansen, Tim O’Brien, Cate Richards, Hollie Rice, Jeff Ridgway, Kyla Strid, Rachel Sudlow, Tonja Torgerson, Rachel Van Wagoner and Shanna Wagner.
