Arlene Shechet is the subject of much critical acclaim including a 2012 Art in America cover story by Faye Hirsch. Roberta Smith calls the work “an example for all,” and Peter Schjeldahl writes that Shechet is “an artist with energy and second-nature mastery to burn.” She has recently been honored by the American Academy of Arts and Letters as well as the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Guggenheim Foundation and Anonymous Was a Woman. Her work is represented in important public collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA, and the Walker Art Center. In 2013, Shechet had a solo exhibition at Sikkema Jenkins & Co, NY. Shechet’s solo exhibition “Meissen Recast” on view through July 6, 2014, at the RISD Museum, Providence, RI, focuses on the 2012/13 sculptures she made at the Meissen Porcelain Manufactory in Meissen, Germany. Upcoming solo exhibitions include the Phillips Collections, DC, and the Jewish Museum, NYC. Shechet lives and works in NYC and upstate NY.
