21 Oct-10 Dec 2010. Exhibition entitled Betty Woodman: Roman Fresco/Pleasures and Places featuring selected recent works in ceramic and on canvas.
Exhibition Review by Edith Schloss.
Betty Woodman is a pixie and a wizard. She is one of the most celebrated and articulate ceramicists of today. At the American Academy her big-bellied vases, jagged and chunky, work blithely as art objects, subtly held up by a deep perception and knowledge of history. Bold and fearless, large vessels as well as little pitchers, witty urns and cups, bronze garden benches and other sculptural utilities are presented in daring congregations. Here in Rome, specially made for the site, pale and clay vessels team on the ground before great loose painted flows of linen on the wall
