MEMBER SPOTLIGHT


Austin Sheppard:  Sculptor, Technician, and Educator

Born and raised in southeast North Carolina. 6  years ago,  Austin moved back to the family farm to make work, and wound up getting a job at UNC Pembroke, where he currently works as a Studio Technician and Part-Time Lecturer.

"My work straddles a line between the permanence of traditional sculpture and the impermanence of performance-based occurrences, unified by the objectified, yet malleable human body. Heavily influenced by shaman-like ritualism and pagan guising, I seek sustainability by incorporating both natural and reclaimed man-made materials. Through observation, omen-reading, and the search for the Celtic Otherworld, it is my goal to re-establish a fractured relationship with nature."

To learn more about Austin, continue reading.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT


 Eli Blasko:   Graduate Student Western Carolina University

Eli Blasko is an artist and designer based in Western North Carolina.

He primarily works in sculpture with an emphasis on wood as material. His work ranges from exploring traditional craft and design techniques to expansive conceptual interventions into the lives of objects and highly detailed constructions for public, commercial, and gallery settings. Many of his projects begin as research-based inquiries into the history of objects, images, and geographies.

Eli received a BFA from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in 2012, and also studied in the Studio of Intermedia+ at The Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia. He holds credentials as a craft instructor in carpentry and welding from the National Center for Construction Education Research, and is currently an MFA candidate for 2022 at Western Carolina University.
