Adjunct instructor has work displayed at national art showCowley College adjunct instructor Casi Hamilton was recently honored to have her work showcased at the National Art Education Association’s Studio and Gallery in Old Town Alexandria, VA. Her work will be on display through April 21, 2017.


Hamilton was one of 69 National Art Education Association (NAEA) members to be showcased at the Studio and Gallery. The exhibit will be seen by visual arts education professionals, creative leaders, and students from across the country who will gather at the NAEA Studio and Gallery for a number of meetings and events now through April 21, 2017.


Art leaders of Alexandria juried the 203 pieces submitted, selecting 69 to be exhibited.


Hamilton was thrilled to have her wood-fired tea bowl selected.


“It's an honor to have my work displayed with art teachers from around the country,” Hamilton said. “I am very proud of the work and opportunities that NAEA provides for students and professionals in the arts in my state and nationally.”


Hamilton’s work was made at a professional development opportunity offered through the Kansas division of NAEA. She had the opportunity to participate in a wood-firing with a skilled kiln-builder, David Long.


“The techniques I used on the pot were inspired by a past teacher, Sammye Vanderwall, who had a real passion for using bits of nature in her work,” Hamilton said.


Hamilton teaches Art Appreciation online for Cowley College.
