Visiting Artist Rebekah Bogard

Lake Tahoe Community College

Room F101, Fine Arts Building
South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150

Ceramics artist Rebekah Bogard is hosting a free talk and demonstration of her artwork and techniques on Friday, March 23 at 5:30pm in Room F101, located in the Fine Arts building on LTCC's campus. This is a free event, and all are welcome! Space will be limited, so please arrive early to ensure your spot.

Bogard received her MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2003. She received a BFA from the University of Wyoming in Laramie in 2000. She is currently an Associate Professor in Ceramics and the Art Department Chair at the University of Nevada, Reno, as well as an accomplished studio artist.

Bogard has received numerous awards, including being named an "Emerging Artist" by both the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts and Ceramics Monthly magazine. She has been awarded a residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. In addition, she is a two-time recipient of the Nevada Fine Arts Council Fellowship, as well as receiving the "Best of Show" in several national art competitions. Her work has been shown in several solo and group exhibitions nationwide.

Bogard employs fictional animals in her artwork to explore the narrative of her life and her own personal history. She enjoys featuring animals because they are "beautiful and mysterious creatures, vulnerable to relations with humans." This susceptibility gives them a sense of benevolence that is often lacking in human associations. Bogard uses this vulnerability as a source of power.
