An accomplished sculptor will exhibit her work at Mohave Community College’s Lake Havasu City campus, and she will also be teaching a 3-D design course for the spring semester.
An opening reception for artist Kate Hunt will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 22 in Room 204 on the Havasu campus at 1977 Acoma Blvd. West. The public is invited to attend this event at no cost. The artist will be present for conversation about her work.
“As a sculptor, I am interested in integrating intellectual knowledge with lived experience. I explore paradoxes between the logical, the perceptual, and the poetic, intervals between idea and actuality. I am interested in focusing the nuance that heightens this information,” she said.
Hunt’s 3-D design course could assist students who are interested in careers such as clothing design, interior design and home furnishings, photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, floral design, product design, industrial design, architecture, and landscape.
“Three-dimensional design is a factor in every single aspect of living, from the homes and clothing we choose, to the cars, trucks, and boats we prefer, to the packaging of items we select at the grocery and so on, all of these choices are based on factors of 3-D design,” Hunt said. “Through presentations and assigned projects, this course will teach the formal vocabulary of design in order to articulate why we like what we like. It will be a lot of fun!”
Hunt lived in Minnesota and Texas before moving to Lake Havasu City in June 2014. Hunt’s career as a visual artists includes, design/build projects for private clients, and public and private sculpture commissions in the United States, Great Britain, and Scotland.
She has had numerous exhibitions, including the Weisman Art Museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Maryland Institute College of Art, the University of New Mexico, the Houston Art League, Socrates Sculpture Park, the Duluth Art Institute, and the Plains Art Museum. She has chaired panels at national and international sculpture conferences. Hunt has also completed artist residencies at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop in Lumsden, Scotland and the Athena Foundation in New York.
“I’m looking forward to getting to know other artists, architects, designers, and people just generally interested in the arts here in Lake Havasu City,” she said.
