4:30 p.m. @ Courtyard, Edwards College of Humanities & Fine Arts

Warner Hyde, assistant professor of ceramics, Meredith College, Raleigh, N.C., will explore the interconnectedness of art, nature and spirituality by examining how the creative process of making art from natural materials leads the artist and the viewer to a heightened state of consciousness regarding one's own ethics and responsibility to the natural world. What is nature? What is your current relationship with nature? What do you want it to be? Visual art from the beginning of time has approached these questions, as has contemporary art from Land Art of the ‘70s to present day Eco Art. Environmental ethics and philosophies such as intrinsic-value, virtue-ethics, sentient life, ethical holism and deep ecology will be discussed and communicated through various artworks. Following the lecture, the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery will open an exhibit of Hyde’s work.
