Brain Surgeon-Turned-Ceramics Artist Discusses Craft at Block Museum
Widely-exhibited and collected artist Cliff Lee, who turned to the craft after working as a neurosurgeon, will discuss his intricate porcelain pottery and meticulous artistic process at Northwestern University’s Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art on Saturday, July 21 at 10 a.m.. A coffee reception at 9 a.m. precedes the lecture.
Free and open to the public, Lee’s talk at the Block is co-presented by the American Craft Exposition (ACE), an annual juried show of fine craft organized by The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem at Evanston & Glenbrook Hospitals in which Lee regularly participates. ACE will be held from Aug. 24 through 26 at the Henry Crown Sports Pavilion, 2311 Campus Drive, on Northwestern’s Evanston campus. Tickets for ACE are available at americancraftexpo.org. Proceeds from ACE support breast and ovarian cancer research.
