Double Take

September 24 - November 21, 2020

Double Take: a surprised second look at a person, object or situation whose significance had not been completely grasped at first.

Double Take is an exhibition drawn from the permanent collection of the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum including preliminary sketches by artists who worked with Primal Screen designers to produce the Museum's virtual reality exhibition Full Capacity.

The exhibition Double Take also features work by the 2020 Master of Fine Arts graduates from the Ceramic Art Division of the New York State College of Ceramics, School of Art and Design at Alfred University. Unfortunately, because of the Covid-19 pandemic these artists were denied the opportunity of mounting their graduation, thesis exhibitions. Nevertheless, they worked with great positive energy and spirit to complete their degree requirements. The Museum wishes to congratulate them on their successful completion of the MFA degree and with this exhibition celebrates the vision of each of these individuals: Chris Alveshere, Brittany Dias, Jing Huang, Hiromi Kanada, Ara Koh, Josh Schutz, Kirstin Willders, and ChengOu Yu.
