<em>Pinch and Split with Pyramid: Cobblestone, Crater Blue Lake, Pingo, and Gold Lustre [Blue/Green]</em>, ceramic, 7” x 13” x 13”, 2021

Ceramic sculptures by Rebecca Murtaugh, the John and Anne Fischer Professor of Fine Arts, are featured in a solo exhibition at the Davis Gallery on the campus of Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

With its 23 abstract works, Telluric Transformations asks viewers to slow down to consider their relationship to the natural and human made world. “The role of the hand and the history of objects play important roles in the artists’ philosophy as well as gesture and touch; which is imparted with immediacy and subtlety in materials with prehistoric origins and being directly from and of the earth,” Murtaugh said.

The exhibition runs through Saturday, Sept. 25. Murtaugh will present a talk on Friday, Sept. 24, at 4:30 p.m.; a public reception will follow from 5 to 7 p.m.
