on loan from the personal collections of Anne Currier, Andrea and John Gill, Wayne Higby, Walter McConnell, and Linda Sikora
May 26 - November 12, 2004
Pondered Resource, an exhibition that opened Wednesday, May 26, 2004, featured selections from the personal collections of Anne Currier, Andrea Gill, John Gill, Wayne Higby, Walter McConnell, and Linda Sikora, all faculty members in the Division of Ceramic Art at Alfred University's School of Art and Design.
The exhibition was curated by John Gill, chair of the division and a professor of ceramic art. Selected for display are objects ranging from Fiesta ware, a commercially manufactured dinnerware, to a contemporary Chinese sculpture and 20th-century American studio ceramics.
All the objects included in Pondered Resource "serve as a resource in their homes and workspaces" for the artists and teachers whose efforts have helped to place Alfred University's Master of Fine Arts in ceramic art at the top of the U.S. News and World Report ranking for graduate art programs.
