NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Lauren Selden, professor of art at Stephen F. Austin State University, was the featured artist for April at Indiana University East in Richmond, Indiana.
Selden’s public sculpture titled “Charlie” is currently on display in Richmond. In an interview with Selden, she shares a look into her work, inspiration, creative process, problem solving and teaching philosophy in a YouTube video accessed at www.iue.edu/gallery.
“Your amazing energy, words and work will have a great impact on our students and community,” Nate Kuznia, IUE studio and gallery coordinator, wrote.
Selden also discussed the challenges of 2020 and how the pandemic’s restrictions affected her approach to making her own art, which was previously inspired significantly by travel. Current work is especially inspired by time spent with her daughter and her interactions with her students. “Artists are so good at adapting,” she said. “We kept rolling with the punches.”
