Hirondelle ceramics focus of presentation, reception

PORT ANGELES — Anne Hirondelle’s “Off the Wall” ceramic creations will be the focus of a Studium Generale presentation and reception at Peninsula College’s Little Theater beginning at 12:35 p.m. Thursday.

Both the presentation and the reception are free at the college at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. in Port Angeles.

Hirondelle’s exhibit has been on display in the PUB Gallery of Art since Sept. 19.

Hirondelle has exhibited nationally in one-person and group shows in New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Kan., Scottsdale, Ariz., and Seattle.

Her pieces are in myriad private and public collections including The White House Collection in the Clinton Library, Little Rock, Ark.; The Museum of Arts and Design, New York; The L.A. County Museum of Art; and the Tacoma Art Museum.

She was the recipient of an NEA Fellowship for the Visual Arts in 1988. In 2004, Hirondelle was a finalist for the Seattle Art Museum’s Betty Bowen Award.

In 2009, she was given the Yvonne Twining Humber Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement.

The University of Washington Press published “Anne Hirondelle: Ceramic Art,” a book about her work, in February 2012. In 2014, she was one of four Washington state artists selected to participate in the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Creating a Living Legacy Program.

Hirondelle was born in Vancouver, Wash., and spent her childhood on a farm near Salem, Ore. She has lived and worked in Port Townsend since 1977.
