Published on Wed, September 15, 2010

Marywood University presents the exhibition, Multiple Perspectives: The Ceramic Sculptures of Anne Currier today through October 10 in the Suraci Gallery, Shields Center for Visual Arts. A "Meet the Artist" reception will be held on October 8 from 6:30 -8 p.m. The exhibit is offered in conjunction with a workshop on October 9, Multiple Perspectives: A Day with Anne Currier, in the Clay Studio, Insalaco Center for Studio Arts.

The eleven dynamic ceramic sculptures on display are shaped by the interplay of masses and voids, inside and outside spaces. Projection and recession, light and shadow, substance, and impression are the subject matter of Anne Currier's work. The exhibition features a range of scale and approaches in her recent work and many pieces included in Anne Currier: Sculpture published in 2006 by Arnoldsche.

She has lectured and presented workshops in the United States, Germany and People's Republic of China, and is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Virginia A. Groot Foundation.
