Stephanie Rozene's ceramics

Hartwick's Rozene Exhibits Ceramics at Syracuse

February 24, 2011

Syracuse University's Warehouse Gallery Window Projects will feature The Politics of Porcelain by Hartwick College Assistant Professor of Art Stephanie Rozene, on view from March 3 to May 14.

Rozene draws upon the fine line between design and the visual arts. Her work is the result of extensive research and gifted craftsmanship. Through the medium of ceramics (and with special attention to specific patterns, ornaments, and forms) she explores the politics of American and European ceramics, tracing international developments in this medium back to the reigns of French kings Louis XV and Louis XVI.

For the Window Projects, and with the assistance of SU students, Rozene will exhibit porcelain tableware to turn the entire wall into three large dining tables. This exhibition has been organized in conjunction with several Syracuse's Th3 venues to celebrate International Women's Day (March 8).

Rozene holds a BFA from the New York College of Ceramics at Alfred University in Alfred, NY (2002), and an MFA from the NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia (2004). A recipient of numerous grants and awards (the 2004 Horizon Award Nominee, Museum of Arts and Design, New York; 2011-12 Winfred D. Wandersee Scholar in Residence, Hartwick College), Rozene has been included in many group exhibitions (the 62nd Annual Central New York Artist Exhibition, Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute of Art, Utica, NY, 2010; Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, Grand Rapids, MI, 2008). The Politics of Porcelain is her first museum solo show.

This project was supported in part by a Hartwick College Faculty Research Grant.
