The work of Risa Hricovsky is featured in “Counter Carpet,” an exhibition at the Catron Gallery on Walters State’s Morristown Campus. The exhibit runs through Dec. 1. Hricovsky will give an artist talk at 11 a.m. on Nov. 9 in the gallery.  
The artist is an assistant professor of art at Lincoln Memorial University. 
Hricovsky is a post-discipline installation artist. Her work pushes the boundaries between painting and sculpture and between art, design and craft. She creates work that punctuates space through pattern, color and the use multiple media, examining dichotomies such as order and chaos and attraction and repulsion. Her work may include dissimilar items, pairing fired porcelain with fabric as an example. 
Hricovsky received her M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, did additional graduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and earned her B.F.A. from Bowling Green State University. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her most notable residences are The Studies at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts; the Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center in Skealskore, Denmark; and SIM in Reykjavik, Iceland. 
The Catron Gallery is inside the R. Jack Fishman Library. Admission is free. The Gallery is open during the library’s regular hours, 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The Library will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 25.
