"Reflection: Recent Work by Yves Paquette" highlights recent ceramic and sculptural work by Georgia-based artist Yves Paquette, who creates installations in which objects function as universal, cross-cultural symbols and icons representing a multitude of everyday, societal experiences and relationships. Paquette, whose work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States, is professor of art at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia.
This exhibition opens September 3 and continues through October 5, 2003.
