The works of three ceramicists from nearby universities will be available for viewing beginning Friday, Sept. 24, in Stephen F. Austin State University's Griffith Gallery.

"Fired Up: Three Regional Artists Take a Contemporary Look at Clay" brings together new works by some of the best clay sculptors in Texas and Louisiana, explained Christian Cutler, SFA director of galleries. "Viewers will marvel at the creations by Ken Baskin of McNeese State University in Lake Charles, La., Barbara Frey of Texas A&M Commerce, and Janet Kastner of the University of Texas at Austin."

Accomplishments

  Greg Grant, SFA gardens research associate, spoke at the Angelina Master Gardeners meeting in Lufkin. His presentation, "Gardening for the Birds and the Bees-Saving the World One Garden at a Time," was a lecture on the natural history of East Texas, the effects of man on it, and how to improve local ecosystems through the use of native plants, conservation, and responsible home gardening.
 
Anne Collins Smith, associate professor of philosophy and classical studies, authored a chapter, which was published in a book titled "The Ultimate Harry Potter and Philosophy: Hogwarts for Muggles." The chapter, "Harry Potter, Radical Feminism, and the Power of Love," summarizes feminist scholarship on the Harry Potter series and offers a radical-feminist interpretation of the role of love in overcoming evil.

Hawaiians once used kites to claim pieces of land. The kites were released in the air, and ownership was taken wherever the kite fell.
