intermezzi | An Exhibition by Cori Crumrine
The Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art is proud to present intermezzi, an exhibit by Cori Crumrine from March 14, to April 14. Crumrine is a ceramic artist who creates small-scale, abstract culinary forms using white stoneware and Procreate illustrator.
Italian for “intervals” intermezzi are palate cleansers consumed between courses, refreshing the senses to appreciate the flavor subtleties of the next dish. Bite-sized, curious, and new, my current 2D and 3D works act as intermezzi — an intermission between ideas.
I create abstract forms that play with sensory perception by referencing culinary elements in my sculptures and drawings. Working with a small scale and pastel palette accentuates the confectionary qualities of my work, subtly evoking all five senses. Each piece emanates an individual curiosity, a need for a closer look to determine whether it is fresh or stale, organic or artificial, bitter or sweet.
Cori Crumrine is a ceramic artist based in Columbus, Ohio, with a BFA from Bowling Green State University (2013) and an MFA from the University of Montana (2018). With over ten years of studio experience, Cori has taught multiple ceramics courses for all experience levels. Crumrine currently creates small-scale, abstract culinary forms using white stoneware and Procreate illustrator.
intermezzi will run from Monday, March 14, until Thursday, April 14. The Cawein Gallery of Art is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and follows the Pacific University academic calendar regarding holidays and closures. In-person attendees must follow campus COVID-19 protocols.
