Current Short-Term Resident Artist
Hometown: Saint Paul, Minnesota
Gabby Gawreluk’s work is simple, yet organized. She creates wheel thrown and slab constructed functional and sculptural ceramics. The pared down shapes in her forms and mellow colors suggest nostalgia and represent a parody of the food items that come from both memory and imagination. Food items are simplified into recognizable shapes and colors until all that remains are cartoon-like forms. The pieces Gabby creates provide a glimpse inside her world—a world that is an accumulation of memories, connections and imagination.
