Artist Cybele Rowe to Speak at SCC Nov. 17

 Orange—Internationally renowned sculptor Cybele Rowe will be speaking about the artist’s journey at Santiago Canyon College, Tuesday, Nov. 17.

Rowe’s topic of “Does Size Matter? Large Scale Ceramic Sculpture” will include both the practice and emotional development of the artist.  “It will be an intimate talk about technique, what drives the desire to work, and the process of what happens with the work when completed,” Rowe said. 

Rowe is a native of Australia who lived in New York prior to moving to Southern California in 1998.  She began sculpting in ceramics more than two decades ago, addressing the position of the “temenos” or inner sacred space of the female form.

Rowe has an upcoming show in February at Christian Dior's former home, which is now a gallery.  Her work is held in the private collections of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Halle Berry and EMI Records, and in prominent public collections.

The lecture will take place at 1:30 p.m. in room D-101.  The event is open to the public, but seating is limited.  Rowe’s appearance is sponsored by the Speaker’s Symposium with support from the Santiago Canyon College Foundation. 

Santiago Canyon College is a public community college of Rancho Santiago Community College District, serving the residents of Anaheim Hills, Orange, Tustin and Villa Park.  The college provides education for academic transfer and careers, courses for personal and professional development, and customized training for business and industry.
