Jude Ryan Reiling featured in The Galleries at The Phipps
A series of exhibitions featuring mixed media collage by Carol Adleman, Luck; mixed media abstract expressionism by Charles A. Condon, River Falls; soda-fired stoneware by Jude Ryan Reiling, Minneapolis; mixed media sculpture by Mark D. Roberts and Denise Rouleau, Minneapolis; and acrylics and colored pencil drawings by Michael Tarr, Menomonie, will be on view through March 17 in The Galleries of The Phipps Center for the Arts.
Reiling is a Minneapolis ceramic artist with a studio in Hudson. She received her B.F.A. in painting and drawing from the University of Minnesota, her M.A. in theology from the University of St. Thomas, and has done additional study of ceramics and art history at the University of Minnesota. Her sculptural influences include Michelangelo, Henry Moore, and Nan Smith. Reiling uses stoneware clay to create unique robed figures that through gesture, graphic decoration, and symbols evoke emotional responses in the viewer.
Reiling writes about her work, "I am interested in exploring the brink of where my own emotion meets matter and it is communicated ... to create work that evokes the deepest emotions: hope, joy, sorrow, generosity ..."
In 2012, she was a featured artist at Fine Line Designs Gallery, Door County, and at The Grand Hand Gallery, St. Paul. Her work is also represented by Seasons on St. Croix in Hudson and Studio 391, Northrup King Building in Minneapolis. Galleries hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Sunday noon to 4:30 p.m., as well as one hour before and through intermission of all performances in The Phipps theaters
