SORENSON GALLERY IN FOSSTON FEATURES POTTERY BY LISA MATHIESON THROUGH OCTOBER

Lisa’s Bioand Artist Statement
“I was fortunate to have been born into a family that valued the arts. As a young adult, I received a classical training in music. With this, came the rigorous demands for daily practice, and the fierce, utterly consuming need for self control during performances; I credit these qualities for having fine tuned me, they tempered me into the artist that I’ve become.
In my 20s, I traded my horn for a paintbrush. I received a degree in Fine Arts from Bethel University in 1988. In the following years I studied studio lighting—darkroom techniques at MCAD. I took graduate courses in poetry at the University of Minnesota.“
Currently on display at the Sorenson Gallery in the Fosston Library Arts Center are the beautiful wood carvings of Sheldon Matson and Harlan Haroldson. Stop by the Gallery during regular hours to view throughout August.
