Green creates 'Governor’s Awards in the Arts'

  • Green web 9-14

Nine ceramic vessels created by Morehead State University’s Seth Green, assistant professor of art and design, will serve as the 2014 Kentucky Governor’s Awards in the Arts.  

A public ceremony recognizing the 2014 Governor's Awards in the Arts recipients will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, at the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort.

“What an honor it is for me to be selected to make the awards this year. The Kentucky Arts Council continues to be very supportive in helping me gain exposure as a relatively new artist in the state and has greatly impacted the growth of my career as an artist and arts educator,” Green said.

Green, who joined MSU in 2010, received his Master of Fine Arts degree in ceramics from the University of Nebraska. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Art from Southern Utah University.

He has assisted workshops at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colo., and has been an artist-in-residence at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Mont.

His exhibition record is growing rapidly and he is receiving national recognition for his ceramic vessels. He received the prestigious award of Best Teapot in the 2012 Strictly Functional Pottery National Exhibition and had images of his work published in Ceramics Monthly Magazine.

Green has been a demonstrator and visiting artist at Anderson Ranch Arts Center, the Clay Studio of Missoula, Michigan Mud Conference, Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University, and Western Kentucky University.

In July 2013, Green was awarded the Al Smith Visual Arts Fellowship by the Kentucky Arts Council.
