A solo exhibition of recent ceramic pieces by Robert Winokur opens at the Museum on January 25, 2006.

Robert Winokur was born in 1933 in Brooklyn, New York. In 1956 he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The Tyler School of Fine Art of Temple University where he majored in sculpture and minored in ceramics under the direction of Rudi Staffel; two years later he earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.

From 1966 to 2005 Robert taught ceramics at The Tyler School of Art of Temple University, retiring with the status of Professor Emeritus after thirty-nine years. Robert and Paula continue to maintain their studio and gallery in Horsham, Pennsylvania.

His work may be seen in numerous public collections including Houston Museum of Fine Arts; Nickle Arts Museum at the University of Calgary; Contemporary Museum, Honolulu; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Sanbao International Ceramic Art Work Village and the Ceramics Art Institute, Jingdezen, People’s Republic of China; Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam; and Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Included in this exhibition will be Winokur’s ceramic houses that he characterizes as “a unique kind of container, one that is imbued with a deep set of profound, symbolic and multi-layered psychic associations.”
