'Core Sample' exhibition

Alfred Ceramic Art Museum celebrates with 'Core Sample' exhibition 

To celebrate its move to a new building at Alfred University, the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum will open its doors to the public with an exhibition entitled Core Sample, featuring highlights from its permanent collection.

The opening gala reception, scheduled for 6-9 p.m., Friday, Oct. 28, is open to the public, free of charge.

“Core Sample will include a number of pieces that have not been on view in years,” said Wayne Higby, an internationally acclaimed ceramic artist and educator who is the director of what is now known as the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum.

“This is the first of many ambitious projects slated for the Museum, which will reveal essential aspects of the Museum’s collection, as well as chart new directions in ceramic art and scholarship,” said Higby.
