Kristi Glick graduated from Goshen College in 1997 with an interdisciplinary degree in art, communication and peace studies. After graduation, Glick took some time off to explore a service opportunity with Mennonite Central Committee.
Six years after receiving her undergraduate degree, she decided to go back to school at East Carolina University, graduating in four years with an M.F.A. in metals. In 2009, Glick returned to Goshen College to teach in the art department.
Glick enjoys being engaged with students at the college and appreciates the chance to work one-on-one with students in smaller classroom settings.
“Being Mennonite, I really resonate with the core values and the attitude behind the college as a whole, as a foundation for everything else that goes on,” Glick said.
Jewelry making is Glick’s area of focus, but she also teaches Enameling, Basic Design, Contemporary Art History and Senior Seminar.
Glick currently has two bodies of work on display for the Goshen College Art Faculty Show, in Hershberger Gallery. The first, a more traditional series, is a collection of rings, earrings and pendants.
Glick describes the second display as “Scatterpins.” or sculptural jewelry. These pins are magnetic and are displayed on hanging sculptures.
The Goshen College Art Faculty show will be displayed at Hershberger Gallery until Nov. 9.
