Susanne Lesny credits a three-dimensional art class for her interest in fine art. Assigned the task of creating a bas-relief sculpture using elements of architecture and famous paintings, the ceramicist discovered she had a flair for the process and began creating her interpretations in clay.

"It has given me a new insight to the structure and subtle details of these amazing masters," says the HACC student. "I take great pains to be very accurate about every detail in each work, since my goal is not to put my own interpretation on the work, but to translate into a three dimensional format."

The Camp Hill based artist will be featured Sept. 1 through Sept. 30 at Radius, HACC Gallery and Museum Shop. The gallery is located on the ground floor of the State Museum of Pennsylvania, Third and North Streets. Radius is a partnership of Central Pennsylvania's Community College and the State of Pennsylvania/Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission.

Radius carries many samples of Lesny's work, including ceramic boxes, triangle plates and ceramic plaques. The gallery will hold an open house featuring her work from 1-3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 8. Lesny will be on hand to answer questions and meet visitors. In addition, light refreshments will be provided.

Radius is open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 4:30 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call 787-5590.
