Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, April 30th, 2015 at 3:00 PM PST/ 5:00 PM CST is Chris Ramsay, artist and Professor of Art at Oklahoma State University, where he teaches metals and jewelry courses.  Ramsay's artwork is composed with objects that he has collected and arranged to pursue his interests in conservation, life cycles, and his relationship to nature. 

Professor Ramsay has taught at Oklahoma State University since 1990 and served as the Head of the OSU Art Department from Fall 2008-Fall 2012. Ramsay has taught workshops in numerous locations around the world and during the summer of 2008 taught jewelry making classes for the University of Georgia, Study Abroad Program in Cortona, Italy. Ramsay has been awarded artist-in-residencies at the Oregon School of Arts and Crafts, in Portland, OR. and Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, Maine and was awarded an Open Studio Residency at Haystack School of Crafts, Deer Isle, ME. His artwork is in several personal collections and the permanent collections of the Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK., Children’s Hospitals of Cleveland, OH., and the botanical gardens of Southern Living Magazine, in Birmingham, AL.

 “As an artist I am concerned with the subtle, yet, dramatic relationship between all components of our environment. To fulfill the requirements of this idea, my artwork utilizes a variety of media, form, and scale. I integrate collected objects into my work as a metaphor for the cycle of change that all materials and objects are affected by, including myself. ”

Chris Ramsay:  Meditations in Stillwater will feature more than 30 works from the past two decades by artist and OSU professor Chris Ramsay.
