Hope Bass MFA Exhibition

April 17 @ 8:00 am - April 26 @ 5:00 pm

Clay prints of Roman art and architecture by Hope Bass

Integrated visual arts graduate student Hope Bass, from Ardmore, Oklahoma, will share her ceramics and mixed-media artwork exploring the curiosities of the imagination in her master of fine art thesis exhibition.

Bass’s master’s thesis, “Metamorphosis of Hope: A Ceramic Journey through Imagination and Wonder,” explores the relationship between the wonders of ceramic exploration and the curiosities of the imagination. Most of her artworks are inspired by the fantastical creatures living within the grotesques she saw when abroad in Italy, which paralleled her thoughts and reinforced the connections between her creative endeavors and the boundless realms of the imagination.

The show will be on display April 17–26 in Gallery 181, located on the first floor of the College of Design building on the west side of the Iowa State Campus. Exhibition viewing hours are 8 a.m.–5 p.m. weekdays. Closed weekends and holidays. Admission is free. A reception will be from 5–8 p.m. Friday, April 19.
