Kirkwood Community College’s Clay Club invited Sculptor Linda Lewis to campus on March 29-30. 

Lewis gave a lecture and slide show in which she presented many styles of other artists who helped give her inspiration. She also held demonstrations on how she creates her work.  

According to Lewis’ website, she obtained her BA in Education and Art at Graceland University. Later, she obtained her MSE from Drake University. 

She taught for 34 years in Des Moines schools until she took a workshop given by a narrative sculptor in Santa Fe, New Mexico that reignited her passion for creating objects.  

She has exhibited her sculptures at nationally recognized juried art festivals, galleries, exhibitions and most recently at SOFA Chicago.  

She has received several awards including best of show, first place in sculpture, as well as recognition in national print media. 

She loves creating her sculptures and enjoys giving workshops to students because she throughly enjoys being an educator.
