Stephanie Rozene’s first museum solo show opens at Syracuse University
March 11, 2011

The Warehouse Gallery Window Projects at Syracuse University features The Politics of Porcelain by Stephanie Rozene, MFA’04, on view until May 14.

In a media release from the Warehouse Gallery Stephanie’s work is described as drawing “…upon the fine line between design and the visual arts.”

“Her work is the result of extensive research and gifted craftsmanship. Through the medium of ceramics (and with special attention to specific patterns, ornaments and forms) she explores the politics of American and European ceramics and traces international developments in this medium back to the reigns of French kings Louis XV and Louis XVI. For the Window Projects, and with the assistance of SU students, Rozene will exhibit porcelain tableware to turn the entire wall into three large dining tables.”

An assistant professor of art, ceramics at Hartwick College, Oneonta, N.Y., Stephanie received her B.F.A. from the New York College of Ceramics at Alfred University in Alfred, NY (2002), and her MFA from NSCAD in 2004. A recipient of numerous grants and awards – including the 2004 Horizon Award Nominee, Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and the 2011-2012 Winfred Wandersee Scholar in Residence, Hartwick College -  Stephanie has been included in many group exhibitions, including  the 62nd Annual Central New York Artist Exhibition, Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute of Art, Utica, N.Y., 2010, and the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, Grand Rapids, Mich., 2008.

The Politics of Porcelain is Stephanie's first museum solo show.

This project was supported in part by a Hartwick College Faculty Research Grant.
