Andrea Marquis – Matter In A Floating World
“Matter in a Floating World” is a new exhibition featuring Clay Studio Resident Artist alumni Andrea Marquis. Her upcoming exhibition of large, seemingly heavy objects respond to and defy gravity. Gravity is empathy in material, and Heaven is both earthly delights and as light as a cloud. “Matter in a Floating World” will be on display in the Jill Bonovitz Gallery from October 13 to December 31, 2022. Born in Salem, Massachusetts, Philadelphia-based artist Marquis received her MFA from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2009 and her BFA in 2000 from Syracuse University. Marquis has participated in Artist in Residence programs at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, Peters Valley Craft Center, the Archie Bray Foundation, Tyler School of Art, Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, and La Maison des métiers D’Art in Quebec City, Canada. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and was included in the 2015 NCECA Biennial at the Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University.
