Vivika and Otto Heino
 
While Vivika (1910-1995) and Otto (b. 1915) Heino have long been considered one of the top husband and wife studio potter teams in the United States, with a combined history of working as clay artists equalling more than 100 years, many do not realize that Vivika Timeriasieff Heino was the second MFA (Master of Fine Arts) graduate (after Dan Rhodes '43) in 1944 of the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. The retrospective exhibition curated by Dr. Margaret Carney, Founding Director of the Museum in Alfred, features 132 objects created from 1938 to the present.

The exhibit opens with a gala public reception on Thursday October 19 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Unfortunately, Vivika passed away on September 1st. Otto will be present during the reception in Alfred. A 64-page exhibition catalogue, with color illustrations is available from the Museum. Catalogue essays were contributed by Val Cushing, Gerry Williams, and Margaret Carney.
