Alfred University’s well-known, multi-media art school is unique in its expansive growth from the Binns ceramic art legacy. Alfred Ceramic Art Museum acknowledges this fact by celebrating all the visual arts within various aspects of its exhibition cycle, while concentrating its collection policy on ceramic art.
Two exhibitions open in the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum: Ashley Lyon: Super Real and Reuben Nakian: The Impassioned Gesture. Opening Reception September 21, 5-7pm
Super Real presents a collection of recent artworks, ranging from the colossal to intimate, by sculptor Ashley Lyon. Through scale, fragmentation, and touch, Lyon translates figures and objects into reflections of lived experience.
Reuben Nakian is best known for his large-scale bronze sculptures. However, Nakian left for posterity a large, highly significant body work in the ceramic medium. It is this less recognized, but unquestionably important work the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum is celebrating with this current exhibition Reuben Nakian: The Impassioned Gesture.
