Elisa D’Arrigo currently works in ceramics, after a 30 year hiatus during which she worked with various materials including hand-stitched and laminated cloth. Her pieces conflate color, surface and animated form within the context of the glazed ceramic vessel. Public collections include The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Everson Museum of Art, The Mead Art Museum, The High Museum of Art, The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, and The Weatherspoon Art Museum. Upcoming solo and group exhibitions are planned at Patricia Sweetow Gallery, Pamela Salisbury Gallery and Elizabeth Harris Gallery, where she has had 11 solo exhibitions. She received a BFA in Ceramics from SUNY New Paltz in 1975. She was born and raised in the Bronx, NY.
