Vessels by ceramist Andrea
Gill will be featured at
Swidler Gallery through May
23.
Known for her anthropo-
morphic vessels with colorful
decorated surfaces of jux-
taposing patterns, Ms. Gill
will present a series of her
largest vessels along with ex-
amples from her "Madonna
Vase" and bowl series.
Also on view are new tea-
pots by Dan Anderson, Anne
Currier, Paul Dressang, John
Glick, James Makins, John
Neely, John Rohlfing and
Byron Temple.
Since 1984, Andrea Gill has
been associate professor of art
at the New York State Col-
lege of Ceramics at Alfred
University. She studied pain-
ting at the Rhode Island
School of Design, Providence.
She also traveled to Spain
and Italy exposing herself to
15th-century, tin-glazed
maiolica and other historical
low-fire ceramics.
Andrea Gill's earthenware
vessels are hand built with
slab-construction and press
molding techniques. Her sur-
faces are executed in majolica
or a layering process involv-
ing the use of colored liquified
clay. This second process
allows the surfaces to also
have physical depth, employ-

N

ing a quality similar to layer-
ing of colored tissue papers.
Her surface images include
figurative, floral and non-
objective motifs. Ms. Gill
often draws "pots on a pot" —
multiple two-dimensional im-
ages of pots on the three-
dimensional pot — creating
an ambiguous layering of
several vessels bridging
associations to earlier earth-
enware traditions.
Swidler Gallery is located
at 308 West Fourth Street in
the Washington Square Plaza
Building in downtown Royal
Oak. Gallery hours are
Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.-5
p.m. or by appointment. Fo
information, call the gallery,
542-4880.

Jewish History Exhibits
At Museum Gallery

A Nazi soldier named Heinz
Jost took 129 photographs
depicting the life in the War-
saw Ghetto. This documenta-
tion eventually made its way
to Yad Vashem and, current-
ly under the auspices of the
Smithsonian Traveling Ex-
hibition Service, will make its
debut in Michigan at the
Maple-Drake Jewish Com-
munity Center.
Dubi Ari's The Mission, a
painting depicting the entire
history of the Jewish people,
will be exhibited along with
artworks by Detroit area ar-
tist Lynne Avadenka on the
first floor of the Museum/
Gallery. "A Day in the War-
saw Ghetto" will be displayed
on the second floor.
To accompany these
historically important shows,
the Museum/Gallery. has
organized a Yiddish Cultural
Festival. A resurgence in in-
terest has led to the restora-
tion of a large number of Yid-
dish films from the Archives
of the National Jewish Film
Institute at Brandeis Univer-

sity in New York. The Yiddish
Film Festival, recently shown
at the Museum of Modern Art
in New York City, will feature
fifteen films.

A lecture on Yiddish
culture by University of
Michigan • Professor Anita
Norich will open the festival.
In addition, the festival will
also include a chamber music
concert by the Cleveland Duo;
"Songs from the Shtetl," a
Yiddish song cycle performed
by Shirley Benyas; a Yiddish
cantorial recital; a special
Yiddish Readers Theatre per-
formance; and Harriet Berg's
"Shabbos in the Shtetl"
dance performance.
For a brochure about the
festival, or for information
about the exhibitions, call
661-1000.
Docent tours of both exhibi-
tions will be available for
groups and organizations.
Gallery hours are: Monday-
Wednesday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.;
Thursday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; and
Sunday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
