    • Tue., Oct. 16, 5 p.m., ART 106

    Presented by the School of Art

    On Tuesday, Oct. 16, lawyer and ceramicist Chris Balch will visit SFA to deliver a lecture about art and the law titled “Everything You Didn’t Know You Needed to Ask a Lawyer - for Visual Artists.” As both an artist and an attorney, Balch has a unique and in-depth knowledge of this subject. The lecture will be at 5 p.m. in ART 106. It is free and open to the public.
    In more than 25 years of practicing law, Balch has advised cities, counties, large companies, small companies, and individuals in a broad range of legal disputes and questions. His private clients have sent him around the world in defense of claims and he has tried over 100 cases to verdict before a jury.
    Prior to becoming an attorney, Balch served with distinction in the United States Marine Corps, receiving his Honorable Discharge in 1993. He was awarded the Good Conduct Medal and the Navy Achievement Medal in 1989. Upon graduation from Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law with honors in 1992, Balch clerked for United States District Judge Duross Fitzpatrick. His duties and responsibilities in Chambers brought him intimate knowledge and understanding of federal civil rights statutes and their litigation. Assisting with over 15 jury trials and more than a dozen non-jury trials during his two year clerkship, Balch learned important lessons for the young lawyer on preparation, integrity and tenacity.
    Balch is married to artist and metalsmith Victoria Lansford, author of the Metal Techniques of Bronze Age Masters series of books and videos. They live in Atlanta, GA with their college freshman son, Skyler.
