A reception will be held immediately following the evening presentation, which is accompanying the exhibit, “Pablo Picasso: 25 Years of Limited Edition Ceramics from the Rosenbaum Collection,’’ is on display in the Pauly Friedman Art Gallery in Walsh Hall at Misericordia University through Sept. 24.
The Friedman Art Gallery exhibition features 46 original and limited-edition ceramic works. The ceramic plates, bowls and vases were created by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), the internationally-known painter, sculptor and graphic artist, in collaboration with Georges and Suzanne Ramie and the artisans at the Madoura Pottery in Vallauris, France from 1947-71. Together, they produced 633 different ceramics in limited editions ranging from 25 to 500. A prolific artist throughout his career, he was no different as a ceramicist as he produced, invented and discovered thousands of unique creations during his years at Vallauris.
The exhibit, special lectures and reception are free and open to the general public. The Pauly Friedman Art Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday; and Saturday and Sunday, 1-5 p.m.
