Eric Kniss, instructor of art at Bridgewater College, will display his work at the Cleo Driver Miller Art Gallery in Bridgewater, Virginia.

“Recent Works: Sculpture and Drawing" will be on display from Jan. 4 to Feb. 3. An artist’s reception will take place from 5-7 p.m. Feb. 1. Kniss will give a talk there at 5:30 p.m. The talk, reception and exhibition are all free and open to the public.

The exhibition consists of graphite and mixed-media drawing, as well as kaolin installations. For this type of work, Kniss sifts kaolin, a fine white clay, onto the floor to create forms and patterns.

“Recent Works: Sculpture and Drawing” explores connections/distinctions between these two modes of working. 

“For several years, I have thought of these two genres as distinctly different and autonomous,” Kniss said. “More recently, I have begun to sense the possibility that there may be undercurrents of ideas and ways of thinking/making that are more interrelated than I realized.”

Kniss, who has a bachelor of fine arts in ceramics from Bethel College and a master of fine arts in sculpture from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, was a 2015 Fellow at Hambridge Center for Creative Arts and Science in Rabun Gap, Georgia.
