Today's word on journalism

Tuesday, March 4, 2008

Grammatically Speaking:

"We owe much to our mother tongue. It is through speech and writing that we understand each other and can attend to our needs and differences. If we don't respect and honor the rules of English, we lose our ability to communicate clearly and well. In short, we invite mayhem, misery, madness, and inevitably even more bad things that start with letters other than M."

--Martha Brockenbrough, grammarian and founder, National Grammar Day

Art museum celebrates ceramic artist-in-residence with exhibition, closing reception

January 16, 2008 | The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at Utah State University will feature an exhibition and closing reception Friday for renowned ceramic artist-in-residence Owen Rye.

The museum invites the public to attend the reception from 5-6:30 p.m. at the museum.

Rye has been studying, practicing, teaching and writing about ceramic art for 40 years. His interest in ceramics led him overseas and into the world of archaeology. Funded by the Smithsonian Institute, he studied traditional potters and glassmakers of Pakistan and Israel, later writing a book on ceramics for archaeologists. He is a well-known leader in the woodfire movement in Australia and overseas, and his interest in all things involving clay and fire has made him a valued teacher across the broad spectrum of ceramics.

Working with Utah State University's ceramic program in the art department, Rye has explored the unique woodfire kilns distinctive to the USU program. During his semester-long residency at USU, he demonstrated his process to ceramics students and mentored young and developing potters.
