Artist Reception: Scodella da Impagliata

“Scodella da Impagliata” is a ceramic art exhibition of new work by Associate Professor of Art Susannah Biondo-Gemmell.  The exhibition runs September 17 through October 22.

An Artist’s Reception will be on Homecoming Saturday, September 23.  Admission is free and open to the public. 

In this show, Biondo-Gemmell reconsiders the Renaissance “childbirth vessel.” Ceramic sculptures based on the historical, five-piece forms recorded by craftsman Piccolpasso are used as canvases to explore the maternal narrative.  Historical imagery is paired with contemporary text in order to draw similarities and differences between childbirth experiences across time periods, including areas such as fertility, pregnancy, birth, and early child rearing.

All shows are in the Peter Paul Luce Gallery in McWethy Hall. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 2 to 4 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free.  Peter Paul Luce Gallery programming is funded through the generosity of the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc.
