opening of the PICASSO EXHIBIT Feb. 20

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – The opening of the “PICASSO: 25 Years of Edition Ceramics from the Rosenbaum Collection” was Feb. 20. 

The David McCune International Art Gallery at Methodist University will present the exhibition, “PICASSO: 25 Years of Edition Ceramics from the Rosenbaum Collection” from Feb. 20 to April 13. There will be an opening night gala from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 20, which the public is invited to attend.

For this exhibit, the gallery will be open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. There is no cost to visit the gallery.

The exhibition presents a selection of the ceramics created by Pablo Picasso in collaboration with George and Suzanne Ramie and the artisans at their Madoura pottery workshop in Vallauris, Southern France, between the years 1947 and 1971. The exhibition consists of 40 ceramic works – plates, bowls, pitchers, vases, and plaques – in addition to posters and other memorabilia.

The show’s stop at the David McCune International Art Gallery at Methodist University is part of a national tour, with Methodist being the only North Carolina and South Atlantic venue. The event possible thanks to community sponsors, including premiere sponsorship from Cumberland County Tourism Development Authority; ARCO; and Janet Parks, gallery consultant for the David McCune International Art Gallery.

“Picasso is an artist that most people recognize, and have strong opinions about, and this is the type of show that people will travel to see,” said Gallery Director Silvana Foti. “A Picasso show is something that we would normally find in a more metropolitan area. Without the support of our community sponsors, we wouldn’t have been able to bring a name like Picasso to the gallery. This exhibit is also intriguing because we can take a less-known aspect of Picasso’s work – his ceramic art – and we could bring it to the public eye.”
