New Work by Josh Zeis

February 3, 2018 - April 28, 2018

Xcel Energy Gallery

Local veteran and artist, Josh Zeis, brings to you his latest series of mixed media sculpture comprised of etched and molded copper, stoneware, and steel. These pieces are a tribute to the landscape and materials that Zeis experienced during his time spent in combat operations in Iraq, yet they also reflect the anxiety of warfare – specifically the fear of IED’s.

A prominent artist and teacher, Zeis received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the George Washington University in Washington, DC, and his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from NDSU. He has participated in residencies and workshops in various places throughout the US such as: Red Lodge Clay Center (Montana), Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts (Maine), and St. John’s Pottery Studio (Minnesota). Outside of his studio practice, he is a ceramics instructor at Plains Art Museum’s Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Center for Creativity, and a landscape designer and coordinator for Hebron Brick & Block. He engages veterans, their families, and the public in object oriented dialogue as part of a National Endowment for the Humanities grant initiative through NDSU titled “Project Unpack: Telling Stories, Creating Community.”
