Art shows feature sculpture, ceramic exhibits

The Pittsburg State University Art Department is presenting two shows in its galleries in Porter Hall.

“Waiting Spaces,” by Tennessee sculptor Michael Baggerly is being featured in the University Gallery. Baggerly's art practice is a blend of psychology and physical matter, often using the object of a chair to represent how social interactions grow and change society. His show runs through Oct. 17.

“The Journey,” an exhibit by ceramic artist Jed Schlegel of Joplin, Mo., will be featured in the Harry Krug Gallery beginning Friday, Oct. 5. A potter whose craftsmanship and design are as important as the glazes he uses, Schlegel looks for ways to bring sculptural qualities to his form. Schlegel will present a public lecture on his work at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9, in Room 103 in Porter Hall. A reception will follow in the Harry Krug Gallery. The exhibit runs through Nov. 9.

Gallery hours are 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information about these shows, contact the Department of Art at 620-235-4305 or visit
