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 & 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.
