8/18/2014 - 9/13/2014 -  Museum of Art/WSU Fine Arts Faculty Focus: Ann Christenson
Pullman
The Museum of Art/WSU announces a retrospective journey in a Fine Arts Faculty Focus Exhibition by artist Ann Christenson, Aug. 18– Sept. 13. An opening reception will be held 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 28, in the Museum of Art gallery with a talk given by the artist at 7 p.m. Admission to the museum is free. The Museum of Art has a long-standing tradition of presenting work by department of Fine Arts faculty members. Since 2004, these exhibits have alternated large group shows with a biennial exhibit showcasing a recently retired faculty member. This year the museum presents a retrospective exhibit of Ann Christenson's work. Ann Christenson began teaching at WSU in 1990 as a ceramicist. Her work often resembles a confluence of juxtapositions: organic yet geometric, industrial yet primeval, intimate yet worldly, and awkward yet elegant. She draws her influences from her cross-cultural experiences, domestic environment, and the natural world in order to explore space and material. She creates decorative ceramic forms that disrupt convention and echo an unexpected beauty. Intuition and improvisation often come into play, and the diversity of ceramic art throughout the ages fuels her creations. The Museum of Art is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. Gallery hours are Monday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays and closed on Sundays. For more information please contact the museum at 509-335-1910 or visit our website at http://museum.wsu.edu. This exhibit is funded by the members of the Museum of Art/WSU and the Samuel H. and Patricia W. Smith Arts Endowment Fund.
