Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.

Kilnin’ It is a sculpture exhibition of work by the Spring 2017 Advanced Ceramics class. Artists plan on exhibiting a range of work that is based in clay with mixed media elements. This show explores the repetition and refinement of wheel thrown forms; playing with arrangement and elements of design via handmade forms and found objects, and experiments with various displays. Material is a driving factor in the work made. Each artist has been completely involved in every step of the ceramic process, starting with making clay and ending with final glaze firings. What emerges are works that utilize a variety of wheel thrown, hand built, and alternative processes, culminating into a tactile group exhibition.
About the Authors
The Advanced Ceramics class is intended to continue developing style and techniques for the individual maker, aiding them in pursuit of their own artistic direction. During this semester, students have learned through making, viewing, discussing, and writing about their art. These components create the world in which art lives. In this course, everyone has explored the languages, or styles, of making and have begun developing their own language and way of participating in both the art they have created and the world as they see it. They all sincerely look forward to sharing their vision with the Millersville community!
