Opening Reception for Art Exhibition
Featuring Ceramic Works of Lynnette Hesser

Jacksonville State University Department of Art announces the opening of the art exhibition “Attention to Detail” featuring the carved and manipulated ceramic works of faculty member Lynnette Hesser. The exhibition opens Tuesday, January 9 with a reception from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. in Hammond Hall Gallery on the JSU campus.

The exhibit will run through Tuesday, January 23. Gallery Hours are from 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Monday - Friday. All exhibitions are free and open to the public.

Lynette Hesser's husband Steve Loucks is a professor of Art at JSU. They both work on the potter's wheel and embellish their work through assembling several pieces. They then either manipulate the form or carve details.

They also create creative glazes by using multiple glazes, using form to decide what glaze to use so that it creates a uniform piece. According to Hesser, you still never know how it is going to come out with a kiln.
