Artist Talk | Thurs, Apr 10, 7pm @ Gamache-Koger Theater

As a sculptor, Celeste Roberge has always had a keen interest in the convergence of art and science.
In recent years, this fascination has drifted towards the forms of the sea, specifically with
Agarum cribrosum, commonly known as “sea lace.”  Her investigations into the properties of this
natural material is evidenced in the works to be included in the exhibition -- photography, cyanotypes
in an homage to photographer Anna Atkins, vessels sculpted from sealace, and cast iron and bronze
vessels created during her recent Kohler Arts/Industry residency in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Roberge has exhibited her work for over thirty years nationally in museums and galleries from Maine
to California and internationally in Canada, Iceland, and Germany. Her sculptures are included in the
collections of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Nevada Museum of Art, Portland Museum of Art,
Farnsworth Art Museum, and the Harn Museum of Art, amongst others, and in numerous private
collections. She is currently a Professor of Sculpture at the School of Art + Art History, University of
Florida. She maintains studios in Gainesville, Florida and in South Portland, Maine.
