Description:

“Scodella da Impagliata” is a ceramic art exhibition of new work by Associate Professor of Art Susannah Biondo-Gemmell. 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. An Artist's Reception will be on Homecoming Saturday, Sept. 23, from 3-5 p.m. The exhibition runs through Oct. 22. Biondo-Gemmell will give a HAIG Lecture at 11:15 a.m. Oct. 12 in McWethy Hall Room 222. Gallery hours: Monday-Friday, 9-4, Sundays: 2-4
