The Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist & Lecture Series presents the first two lectures of the fall 2016 season. Deborah Luster and Shoko Teruyama, both of whom are Nebraska National jurors, will give consecutive public lectures.

Shoko Teruyama grew up in Mishima, Japan. She earned a BA in education and taught elementary school before coming to the United States to study art at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in 1997. She received her MFA in ceramics in 2005 from Wichita State University and finished a three-year residency at the Penland School of Crafts in 2008. She is currently a studio artist in Alfred, NY.

Shoko’s handbuilt work is made of earthenware with white slip and sgraffito decoration. She makes boxes, intimate bowls, and small plates for precious objects. Her work is inspired by sacred spaces and ceremonial objects that are part of daily living in Japan. She regularly exhibits and teaches workshops at top ceramics venues, and she has been a contributor to Ceramics Monthy magazine.

Nebraska National is an annual undergraduate juried art exhibition with a national call. Each year three different media disciplines are featured, and in 2016 these are ceramics (Juror–Shoko Teruyama), photography (Juror–Deborah Luster), and printmaking (Juror–Nicole Pietrantoni).
