Brickell, Meredith K., MFA
Associate Professor of Art and Art History and Chair of the Art and Art History Department
Meredith Brickell joined the Department of Art and Art History in 2008 and teaches courses including Introduction to Ceramics, Ceramics: Food and Community, and Ceramics and the Body.
Meredith Brickell’s artwork draws from architectural forms, historical narratives and elements of the physical landscape. Her practice is informed by particular sites, especially those that reflect the impermanent nature of places and the ways that these places are continuously shifting and being redefined. Brickell often employ materials collected from a site in the finished artwork in order to create a strong connection between this physical residue and the visible and invisible effects of change on a place over time.
Brickell exhibits her work internationally and has been an artist-in-residence at the Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center (Denmark), Watershed Center (Maine) and Threewalls (Chicago). Brickell holds a Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a Bachelor of Art and Design from North Carolina State University and completed the Core Fellowship program at Penland School of Crafts (NC).
