The exhibition 'Core Sample: Additional Findings' continues at the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum.

The Alfred Ceramic Art Museum will host expanded hours Saturday, April 15 in conjunction with the opening of the exhibition “William Underhill: Circle and Square” at the Cohen Gallery, on Main Street in Alfred.

The expanded hours also coincide with Alfred University MFA thesis exhibitions in the Robert C. Turner Student Gallery and the Fosdick-Nelson Gallery on the University campus.

The Ceramic Art Museum also will be open to the public at no charge April 21 through April 23 in honor of Alfred University’s Spring Family Weekend. Museum hours will be Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 The Museum is currently hosting the exhibit Core Sample: Additional Findings, the second in a series of exhibitions that explore the Museum’s permanent collection. Works on display include the art of renowned Alfred University ceramic art faculty, as well as other major 20th and 21st century American and international ceramic artists. In addition, the exhibition includes ceramic works of individuals whom the Museum calls “Ancestors” – ceramic artists of the ancient Americas, as well as Japan, China, Korea, Africa and American Indian communities. A third major feature of the exhibition highlights the astonishing creativity and intellectual rigor of artists who have received MFA degrees in ceramic art from Alfred University.
