Rosemary Aicher – Sketches made Permanent


March 4 – April 3, 2016
Opening reception Friday March 4, 7-9:30pm

Rosemary Aicher exhibition invitationRosemary Aicher’s ceramic work represents a melding of her interests in figurative drawing, archaeology and pottery:

“In this exhibition I lift images from the pages of my sketchbooks and project it onto the enduring form of the ceramic object, the timeless technology of human culture. When Gilgamesh set out to carve his story on the walls of Uruk he was searching for a kind of immortality. When I print the drawing on the surface of a ceramic vessel I seek to mark the brief moments of existence in the arc of history and to make a connection to the past permanent.”

A graduate of the University of Toronto, Rosemary Aicher has worked as an artist in the field of archaeology in Iran, Egypt, Tunisia, Malta, Italy and Canada. Her work has received honors, including the Fusion Design Award. In 2009 she was named artist in residence at the Joseph Schneider Haus.
