Francis Marion University in Florence, SC, Features Works by Patz Fowle and Heidi Jensen

Ceramic sculptures by Patz Fowle and drawings by Heidi Jensen will be on display at Francis Marion University in Florence, SC, as part of the university's Art Gallery Series, from Oct. 7 through Nov. 19, 2003. The artwork will be on display in the Hyman Fine Arts Center gallery on the FMU campus.

Fowle's exhibit is titled, Humanimals ­ Characters in Clay. She developed the "Patz Process," an original technique for hand sculpting in clay. She attended Parson School of Design and now creates zany designs in Hartsville, SC. Fowle's work is in private and public collections throughout the South.

"My ceramic sculptures are created using a combination of manipulative media and human emotion," Fowle said. "I find it very fascinating to create art with something that is dug out of Mother Earth, using my mind, a kiln and just a few handmade tools."

Heidi Jensen's exhibit is titled, Predicaments and Perceptions. Jensen is currently an assistant professor of art at Clemson University. She received her Master of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in drawing from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

"My current work takes the form of large-scale representational drawings executed in pastel," Jensen said. "I use drawing as a means of intense observation and as a practice by which I undertake comprehensive study of the underlying structure and surface detail of natural forms."
