Hollister Gallery at Babson College presents Constellations: New Ceramic Sculpture by Josephine Burr, on display from February 2 through March 14.

Burr’s pieces were created in part during a 2011 summer residency at the Sorenson Center for the Arts at Babson. She has created a group of drawn and sculpted forms exploring the movement of line through space, ranging from an installation of elliptical wall pieces linked by subtly luminous loop drawings, to a series of monochromatic, freestanding “knot” sculptures.  Using a visual vocabulary of knots, loops, and clusters in both layered drawings and dimensional forms, Burr’s work maps an ephemeral terrain of connection, transition and memory.
Burr received her MFA from UMASS Dartmouth, and was Manager of Education and Studio Operations and Artist in Residence at Greenwich House Pottery in New York City from 2002-2007. She has taught at Harvard University, UMASS Dartmouth, and Babson College.
