April 16- August 1, 2016
Cohen Gallery 55 N. Main Street Alfred, NY 14802
The Gills, both Professors of Ceramic Art in the School of Art and Design at Alfred University, are known for their generosity and invite fellow professors, visitors and students into their home for meals and tours throughout the year. Functional art objects live a unique life in the Gill home, passed around the dinner table, stacked in cupboards, and filling shelves throughout the house, studio and in the basement (SoLo) gallery. The work in the collection has a history of fueling conversations around the Gill’s dinner table and home spaces.
Sharon McConnell’s Exhibition Design class selected work, a small portion of the collection, to present in the intimate and homelike environment of the Cohen Gallery, intermingled in a reflection of the Gills’ home. This portion of work from the Gills’ collection, both their home and basement (SoLo) gallery include ceramic pieces from the Ming Dynasty to the summer of 2015.
