Through the use of ceramic sculpture, found industrial material, illustrations and his memory, artist Tyler Nicholson plans to demonstrate his craft next week in North Georgia.
“In my work I draw on my memories of being raised in a quiet farming community then transitioning to the chaotic nature of serving in combat and my nostalgia for these opposite ways of life,” Nicholson is quoted on his website. “I create narratives that explain my personal endeavors, my skewed perception of past events and those I observe in day-to-day life.”
The master of fine arts candidate at Georgia State University will give two demonstrations and talk to students Oct. 30 at the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega. The first demonstration is scheduled for 9-11:30 a.m. The second is scheduled to be from 12:30-2:30 p.m. The lecture is slated for 2:45 p.m. All events will be inside the Choice Street Art Annex at 199 Choice on the corner of Choice and S. Chestatee in Dahlonega.
The demonstrations and talk are free. Visitor parking is available in the north end of the Recreation Center parking deck Lot 14 and off Main Street.
