Ashley Lyon Artist Talk

Ashley Lyon will give an artist lecture in conjunction with her exhibition, Super Real, currently on view at the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum. The lecture will take place on October 26 at 4:30pm in Nevins Theater. Super Real presents a collection of recent artworks, ranging from the colossal to intimate, by sculptor Ashley Lyon. Through scale, fragmentation, and touch, Lyon translates figures and objects into reflections of lived experience.

Lyon's Exhibition will be on view through December 30, 2023
