Love Lola Brooks

"I'm a story teller."
This was the first sentence of a stunning presentation tonight by Lola Brooks, a visiting artist to the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia and this year's Dodd chair. Brooks is an artist and metalsmith whose guest positions at distinguished schools, including Rhode Island School of Design and Penland School of Crafts is impressive, but nowhere near so as her work and dedication to it. She chose this passage to begin her lecture, then continued to share a slice of her own story that better helped us connect with her work and approach to it. Sound familiar!
