A legacy in ceramics

Barbara Galazzo of Gallery 66 NY in Cold Spring is doing some work with Rockland Center for the Arts in West Nyack and so has kindly passed along the following details about RoCA’s latest exhibition:

“Rockland Center for the Arts looks at its legacy of the past with Henry Varnum Poor, who was an important contributor to the Rockland Center for the Arts in its formative years and a longtime resident of Rockland County. Henry Varnum Poor was an American architect, painter, sculptor, muralist, and potter. RoCA is happy to announce that several of Henry Varnum Poor’s ceramic works are on loan, through the generosity of Peter Poor, for the ‘In Form: Contemporary Sculptural Ceramics’ exhibit.

… In the spirit of Henry Varnum Poor’s legacy of experimentation, RoCA presents ‘In Form: Contemporary Sculptural Ceramics,’ featuring Contemporary Artists of the 21st Century who are continuing to experiment with forms, surface and structure. ‘In Form’ takes a look at how contemporary ceramic forms have evolved since its freedom from function after World War II. Free to diverge from traditional pottery, these ceramists use humor, abstraction, social and political commentary as well as architectural forms.”

The exhibition continues through Nov. 30.
