March 17, 2010

"Who Needs a Pedestal?", a group exhibition by Ceramics program graduate students and alumni from the University of the Arts, investigates the role of the pedestal in the ever-evolving realm of contemporary art. Juried by faculty from the University's Ceramics program, the show features seven artists who embrace the philosophy of questioning traditional platforms of thought.

Running from March 31 to April 3 (noon – 5 p.m.) at the University's Gallery 224 (333 S. Broad St., 2nd floor), the show includes the work of program graduates Xiomara Babilonia '09, Mary Gamble Barrett '05, Tammi Razzano '08, Jamin London Tinsel '07 and Sara Fine-Wilson ’08 and graduate students Jessica Cohen and Virginia McKinney (whose work is to the right). A reception is scheduled April 1 from 5 – 7 p.m. in Gallery 224.

The exhibition was organized with assistance from Rebecca Fell, a graduate student in the University's Museum Exhibition Planning and Design program, and is presented in conjunction with "Independence," the 2010 conference National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, taking place in Philadelphia March 31 – April 3 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
