Zoomorphic / May 17-Aug. 9

Zoomorphic art is a clever blend of animal forms and human ideas. Animals provoke many feelings in people, from affection and tenderness to outright fear. In this exhibition, artists combine human feelings with animal images to create curious portraits of both -- in print, painting and ceramics.
Support for Zoomorphic is provided by the Evelyn Smith Exhibition Fund, Friends of the ASU Art Museum and the Stulgaitis Family Scholastic Award in honor of Helen Flecha Polina. Community partners include KAET PBS/8, Changing Hands Bookstore, Papa Murphy and Valley Metro.

In these figurative prints selected from the permanent collection, women artists take on social and domestic issues, as well as themes of history, culture and identity, each with a distinctive approach to her work that reflects her individual interests, training, personality and experiences.

Curated by Emma Ringness, research intern, with Jean Makin, print collection manager.

Infinite Place: The Ceramic Art of Wayne Higby / ends July 20

If you haven't seen it yet, don't miss Infinite Place: The Ceramic Art of Wayne Higby, a landmark exhibition featuring the work of contemporary ceramist Wayne Higby. The 60–piece exhibition, organized by CRC Curator of Ceramics Peter Held, is the first major retrospective to provide an in-depth critical analysis of Higby’s work from the 1960s to the present, offering a full view of his stylistic development. The exhibition highlights Higby’s earlier raku-fired ceramics and later groundbreaking large-scale architectural wall installations, as well as his study drawings.
Infinite Place: The Ceramic Art of Wayne Higby is funded by an Artist’s Exhibition Series grant from the Windgate Charitable Foundation, with additional funds provided by Marlin and Regina Miller, The Robert C. Turner Chair endowment fund, Alfred University, Friends of Contemporary Ceramics and the ASU School of Art Ceramics Program.

In the Store

New jewelry from Victoria Altepeter

The ASU Art Museum Store is now carrying jewelry by Victoria Altepeter, a Tempe-based metalsmith and educator with an MFA from Arizona State University.

Altepeter's work revolves around her interest in the night sky. Inspired by views of deep space from the Hubble telescope, she makes each piece one at a time, by hand, often employing special alloys she creates.

Let there be light — and dark

Each piece in the exhibition Turn off the Sun, on view at the ASU Art Museum through Sept. 7, packs tremendous heat, power and impact. Drawn from La Colección Jumex in Mexico City, an incredible private contemporary art collection of about 2,600 works, Turn off the Sun displays two dozen of these searingly honest and beautiful pieces. This is only the second time that any of the Jumex collection has been shown in the United States.
