August Artist Talk

August 14, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The “Artist Talk” for August, sponsored by the Jackson County Arts Council, will feature graphic design artist Lauren Medford. The name of her presentation is Bridging the Gap Between Fine Art & Graphic Design. She will discuss her personal journey from graphic designer to artist. Discussing her background and work, the differences between art and design and how joining thought processes from both fields allowed her to make connections and work in a different way.

Lauren Medford is in her second year of an MFA program at Western Carolina University. She received her AA in Graphic Design from Southwestern Community College and her BFA in Art from WCU. Her experience in graphic design has shaped her as an artist.  Her pristine sculpture and print work is informed by semiotics. Lauren states, “Graphic design and fine arts are often two distinct fields. The intent of my work is to unite techniques and thought processes from both creative fields through mediums of print and sculpture.”

This Artist Talk will take place on Monday, August 14 from 6p to 7p in the Community Room of the Jackson County Library Complex. Everyone is encouraged to attend this demonstration. There is no charge for this event.

Artist Talks are sponsored monthly by the Jackson County Arts Council as an effort to celebrate the many artists and art forms in Jackson County.
