Massachusetts ceramic artist Nancy Train Smith has installed a school of terracotta fish on the grounds of the Fuller Craft Museum, and the installation, Migration, will be on view through October 31, 2010. Consisting of over 100 terracotta figures, the work is a dramatic reinterpretation of the landscape through the visual tension between form, location, and color. The Bermuda-born artist, who now lives locally, has an extensive and evolving catalog of work in ceramics and painting.
The Fuller Craft Museum is located on twenty-two acres of woodland on the shores of Porter's Pond which provides a picturesque home for this large piece. Fuller Executive Director Wyona Lynch-McWhite says of Smith's work, “The stunning beauty of the grounds here really lends itself to an installation like this. Nancy’s terra cotta fish fit well amidst the surprising landscape, indigenous wildlife and whimsical sculptures out there.”
