Walter Hyleck
$ 36.00


Artist's Bio
Well respected as an educator, Walter Hyleck first studied art and art history as an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota, and then in graduate school at Tulane University. After graduating in 1967, he placed roots in Berea, Kentucky, beginning his extensive career as an educator at Berea College spanning 42 years. In 1970 he founded the influential and longstanding Berea College Ceramic Apprenticeship Program, which mentored students in the technical aspects of ceramic design, production, and marketing while also helping to develop students’ artistic vision and expression. This program fostered close relationships between students and faculty and helped produce many successful ceramic artists and teachers. Hyleck has participated in over 250 solo, invitational, and juried exhibitions, which include showing work at the Smithsonian Institute in DC, the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC, and the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft in Louisville, KY. A dedicated teacher, he has held workshops and classes across the U.S. and Canada. His work is held in numerous permanent collections, including at the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, California; the Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC; and the University of Indianapolis.
