The first blog post I did as Woman Seeking Art was the Viola Frey career retrospective show at the di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art in Sonoma, CA. Ever since, I always share images of any of Frey’s work I see, and believe I’ve made some of you fans along the way. Her work is immediately recognizable, and I haven’t met a piece of hers I haven’t liked.
Viola Frey: Faces, Masks and Figurines at the Nancy Hoffman Gallery was fantastic. I had a nice long conversation with a lovely man working at the gallery whose name I am forgetting. Frey fans cannot talk enough about her, and I was glad to meet someone so knowledgeable about the work.
I was excited beyond belief to see the World Civilization Bench. I took photos from every angle, walked around it probably 50 times. I truly found it hard to leave.
The ceramic plates below are from 1979-1998. Ask me for specific names and dates on anything!
