Art Research Subject of Westminster College Faculty Forum

Kathy Koop, professor of art at Westminster College, will present "Raw Rustic: Functional Sculpture" at Faculty Forum Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 11:45 a.m. in the Sebastian Mueller Theater in the McKelvey Campus Center.

 "I will give a slide presentation about my research and development in the arena of greenwood construction, which is sculptural projects," Koop said.  "My three-dimensional design students also participated in this research through assigned class projects, and examples of their work will also be shown."

Faculty forum, established in 1990, serves as a venue for the exchange of ideas and information among Westminster College faculty.  Speakers present their research, teaching ideas, lectures, performances, special programs, and uses of technology to keep faculty informed about the work of colleagues from many disciplines.

Koop, who has been with Westminster College since 1973, earned her undergraduate and master's degrees from Indiana University.  She recently had five porcelain cactus jars purchased by the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pamona, Cal.  Koop's work has been featured in galleries in Texas, New York, and California, as well as the local shows such at the Three Rivers Art Festival and the Hoyt Institute of Fine Art.  She has lectured in numerous locations, including the Florida Everglades National Park Visitor Center, the Mara Institute of Technology in Shah Alam, Malaysia, and the International Workshop of Ceramic Art in Tokoname, Japan.

The event is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Koop at (724) 946-7267 or e-mail
