Name: SELECTIONS: WOODSTOCK CERAMIC ARTS TODAY
Date: February 25, 2017
Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST
Event Description:
Selections: Woodstock Ceramic Arts Today will complement the exhibition, Carl Walters and Woodstock Ceramic Arts at the Samuel Dorsky Museum at SUNY New Paltz, which runs from February 4 – May 21, 2017. The Dorsky exhibition focuses on Walters’s functional ceramics—plates, bowls and vessels—as well as his independent sculptures. Ceramics predating his own, made by artists who worked at the Byrdcliffe Art Colony including Zulma Steele, Hunt Diederich, Bolton Brown and Alexander Archipenko, contextualize his work. The exhibition at Byrdcliffe’s Kleinert/James Center for the Arts moves this history forward, featuring work by contemporary ceramicists from the region: Rich Conti, D-Day, Eric Ehrnschwender, Sophie Fenton, Mary Frank, Jolyon Hofsted, Brad Lail, Joyce Robbins, Arlene Shechet, Elena Zang, and others. Byrdcliffe is regionally renowned for its recently expanded ceramics program, which dates to the early days of the colony, founded in 1902. The exhibition will be cohosted by the Historical Society of Woodstock, 20 Comeau Drive. The Historical Society will be open on Saturdays and Sundays during the run of the exhibition, February 24 – April 9 2017. For hours and more information, visit www.historicalsocietyofwoodstock.org. Curated by Tom Wolf, Professor of the History of Art at Bard College, and the students in his class “History of Art in Woodstock.” Opening Reception: Saturday, February 25, 2017, 2:00 – 4:00 pm
