Brian H. Jones, retired professor, taught at Indiana University Southeast for thirty six years. He received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from Indiana University Bloomington, and received his Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Cincinnati. Jones has an extensive, international exhibition record; which includes the Biblioteque de France, the University of Louisville Print Archive, and the Utah Museum of Art. He has also participated in over fifteen artist fellowships, and served on many non-profit boards.

Brian Somerville is a sculptor who received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University of Evansville, and received his Masters of Fine Arts from Florida Atlantic University. Somerville now works out of his studio in Burns, Tennessee where he creates what he calls his “beasts.” “I sculpt beasts.” He says, “Layered with humor and personal symbolism, my creatures explore human relationships and the beast within us all.” Inspired by his experience in set design and themed construction; Somerville creates these art pieces by sculpting out of solid clay, then hollowing them out, carving intricate details, and adding mixed media additions. Before firing his “beasts,” he often spends weeks on the complex carvings. His intention is to “challenge the boundaries of an artistic experience.”

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information and to RSVP contact Julie Schweitzer at, call 502-649-3320, or visit our website at
