Join us for a conversation with Roberta Massuch, a Philadelphia-based artist best known for her sculptural and functional work in ceramics. Massuch spent several on-site residency days at the Wharton Esherick Museum during fall 2020 and winter 2021 in order to create an installation featuring new, site-specific works that reflect her sensitive and slow observation of Esherick’s idiosyncratic home and studio over the course of many months. In this program, Roberta will talk about her process in creating this new body of work, the connections she found between her work and Esherick’s, and how spending time in the studio sparked new ways of thinking and seeing. 


Roberta Massuch received her BFA in ceramics from Northern Illinois University (DeKalb) in 2005 and her MFA from Louisiana State University (Baton Rouge) in 2013. In addition to posts as an instructor at The Clay Studio (Philadelphia, PA), Tyler School of Art (Philadelphia, PA), and the Community College of Philadelphia (PA), she has received awards including the Jerome Ceramic Artist Project Grant in 2009, the Independence Foundation Visual Arts Fellowship in 2015 and further recognition through publications such as Clay Times, Ceramics Monthly, Musing About Mud, and various exhibition catalogs through The Clay Studio. She was a 2021 Summer McKnight Artist Resident at the Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis. Massuch’s work has been exhibited at universities, institutions, galleries, and museums across the United States including Northern Clay Center (Minneapolis, MN), Appalachian Center for Craft (Smithville, TN), Worcester Center for Craft (MA), The Clay Studio, Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show (PA), Goggleworks Center for the Arts (Reading, PA), and the Visual Arts Center of Richmond (VA).
