Kat Frick Miller, Jennifer Green and Katherine Thomas are concluding their year as artists-in-residence at the NSCAD-Lunenburg Community Studios. They are presenting their final weeklong studio exhibition, “Forty-Five Rounds, Ninety-Three Years and Ninety-Six Point Seven Kilometers” from August 14 - 19, 2010. The artists invite the public to join them for the opening reception on Friday August 13, at 5 pm. The NSCAD-Lunenburg Community Studios are located at 40 Duke Street, in downtown Lunenburg. The studios will be open from 11 am to 4 pm daily.

Throughout the year the residents have developed independent bodies of work in painting, textiles and ceramics. Kat Frick Miller has produced a collection of South Shore inspired screen-printed textiles and new painted work. Jennifer Green has dedicated her year to flax spinning and will be exhibiting the resulting handspun yarn and woven textiles. Katherine Thomas has devoted her studio time to investigating new techniques and forms in porcelain and will be displaying a collection of objects designed for the luxurious presentation of food and flowers.

To hear more about the work on exhibit, the artists welcome you to attend their public lecture on Thursday August 19 in the Lunenburg Academy Auditorium at 7 pm. The exhibition and presentation are free and everyone is welcome.
