About the Exhibition and Artist:
Loren Schwerd is an associate professor of sculpture at Louisiana State University where she teaches three-dimensional design and all levels of sculpture. Schwerd’s work repurposes found materials and traditional craft techniques that reside between the pliant categories of sculpture and textiles. Her meticulous handwork obscures distinctions between organic and synthetic matter, communicating opposing suggestions of frailty and resilience and producing a contrast of sensibilities that reflect the discordant relationship between nature and culture.

The exhibition at the Masur Museum of Art features site-specific installation work, sculpture, reclaimed objects, video art, textiles, and photography. Please join us for this closing reception and hear about the artist’s process and the thought behind her work. See her work literally wind through the museum’s galleries.
