Holocaust museum sculpture exhibit deals with burden of memory

One of the ceramic sculptures by Andrea Keys Connell that will be on display at the Florida Holocaust Museum. Visitors to the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg now through Aug. 15 will be treated to a unique display of Holocaustinspired art.

A new exhibit features the ceramic sculpture of Andrea Keys Connell, whose work deals with the burden of memories of her grandparents, survivors of the Holocaust, and the way that trauma affected subsequent generations.

The weight of the memories are so heavy that Connell’s figures appear to sink into the walls and floors of the gallery. The works have an unfinished appearance, almost as if they are still wet clay.

Connell, an assistant professor of ceramics at Longwood University in Farmville, VA,has exhibited her sculpture across the country, including galleries in Louisville, KY, Indianapolis, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Last May she was named a top emerging artist in Ceramics Monthly magazine.

Mindy Solomon, owner of the Mindy Solomon Art Gallery in St. Ptersbyrg, and the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties are community partners with the museum for this exhibit.

For more information call the Museum at (727) 820-0100. The museum is located at 55 Fifth St. S. in downtown St. Petersburg.
