ArtTALKS: Diane Kempler: Garden of Biotanical Delights

Event date: 
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Diane S. Kempler, a native of New York, earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Brandies University. After moving to Atlanta, her art career was launched through a series of clay workshops at the Penland School and, afterwards, establishing her own studio. Her clay sculptures have been the subject of numerous and well-reviewed solo and group exhibitions in the Southeast. Additionally, she had been a staff member at Atlanta’s Callanwolde Arts Center, museum director of the Center of Puppetry Arts and, more recently, a professor at Emory University’s Department of Visual Arts. In 2009, Kempler received a residency at Denmark’s International Ceramic Studio; she later participated in ceramic studio residences in Hungry and France and was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to travel to India to research hand-building pottery techniques in rural villages. Her research has been featured in three short documentary films.
