Best known for her large-scale ceramic sculptures, Oakland artist Viola Frey (1933-2004) was a central figure, along with Robert Arneson and Peter Voulkos, in cracking the barrier between art and craft. Frey, whose work is represented in more than seventy public collections, also produced stunning paintings, drawings, and photography. This book offers an intimate opportunity to consider Frey’s artistic career and distinctive exploration of power and gender dynamics. An essay by Susan Griffin brilliantly examines Frey’s life and work. Hardcover, 128 pages.
