The World of Betty Woodman

I hope you’ll take a moment to click on this link because I’d like you to read this New Yorker article by Peter Schjeldahl about Betty Woodman. Born in 1930, she’s one of the most celebrated ceramists of our time. She is in the limelight once again, along with her family, as a film featuring the them,  “The Woodmans,” won a prize at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival; here’s another story about it.  In addition, the family is part of a show, Betty, Charlie, Francesca & George, which runs till the end of February in Boston. Here’s a review of the show in the Boston Globe. The family’s story is poignant and tragic — their daughter committed suicide thirty years ago, after which the work of Betty and her husband changed markedly. Here’s a slideshow of Betty’s work through ArtInfo. Please take a look!
