Imprimatur: Albert Paley-Sculpture, Drawings, Graphics and Decorative Arts

Imprimatur: Albert Paley-Sculpture, Drawings, Graphics and Decorative Arts (Upper Level)—Professor Craig Adcock, Author; Allys Palladino-Craig, Curator. Touring to the Gulf Coast Museum of Art, Largo, the Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, and the City Hall of Orlando.

To celebrate and set the context for his major commission of architectural gates at University Center, the Museum of Fine Arts is hosting a mini-retrospective of the works of ALbert Paley. The exhibition opens to the public on October 12 and closes November 18, 2001. (M-F 9-4 daily, SS 1-4 daily, closed University holidays.) Albert Paley has altered his scale of working dramatically from the early part of his career—and yet the interest he expressed in treating materials as fluid shapes (shapes as supple as pennants unfurling in the wind) has persisted. At the same time, he has taken on a more formal and ceremonial sensibility in designing some of his monumental sculptures of both civic and private commissions, such as the gates for Florida State University located on the north face of tower A at University Center. Paley is Distinguished Professor holding the Charlotte Fredericks Mowris Professorship in Contemporary Crafts, School for American Crafts, College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York. His honorary doctorates are from the State University of New York at Brockport (1997), the St. Lawrence University (1996), and the University of Rochester (1989). He has both a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1966) and a Masters of Fine Arts (1969) from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia. His recent commissions include Solstice (1998), for the Municipality of Anchorage, Alaska, Symbion (1998) for the University of Toledo, Ohio, but his permanent collections include: The British Museum; the High Museum; the MET; the MFA in Boston; the Smithsonian (Renwick Gallery); the Victoria and Albert Museum; and the White House in Washington, D.C.
