Albion James Stafford ʼ95, Diane Rosenmiller ʼ87, and Gogi Millner ʼ71 will have a ceramics display in the Class of 1956 Gallery in the Mollie Dodd Anderson Library beginning September 2, 2017. There will be a gallery talk and reception on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.
“I make objects for the table,” said Albion. “The table exists as a recipient terrain, accepting a range of occurrence and exploits, particularly those of action and interaction.”
Albion earned both a Master of Fine Arts, Ceramics and a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Ceramics from Alfred University, New York College of Ceramics in Alfred, New York. He is currently an Associate Professor in the College of Fine Arts at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois.
“My pots are predominantly thrown on the pottersʼ wheel and then altered at various stages of clay consistency,” said Diane. “My passion for making pots began while I was a high school student at George School and as a result I found myself spending too much time in the “pot shop” while pursuing a science degree at Juniata College.”
Diane also earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University. She lives in Middletown Springs, Vermont where she established Rising Meadow Pottery in 1998.
Gogi graduated from Kansas City Art Institute with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She owns Cornish Hill Pottery, located in the historic village of Wolfeboro on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee.
