Now showing at the Tang

Ceramics by Toshiko Takaezu are on view at the Tang until June 9.
     Toshiko Takaezu, April 27–June 9. For more than six decades, Toshiko Takaezu has been working in clay. While she studied a variety of media in her early years and has created a significant body of work in fiber and in bronze, clay has remained her primary material for personal expression. This Tang exhibition highlights her works from 1974 to the present.
     Takaezu was born in Hawaii in 1922 and raised in a traditionally Asian home. The influences of the natural world, as well as the Zen concepts of simplifying, perceiving intuitively, and accepting the happy “accident” are realized in much of her mature work. Takaezu has a been a regular visiting artist at Skidmore’s Summer Six art workshops for more than twenty years.
     The show is organized by Lucinda Gedeon, director of the Neuberger Museum of Art at Purchase College, State University of New York.
     Admission to the Tang is free. Museum hours are Tuesday–Friday, 11 a.m.–5 p.m.; closed major holidays. For information about curator’s tours, children’s programs, and other events, call 518-580-8080 or check www.skidmore.edu/tang.
