The exhibition includes several smaller standing figures and wall pieces, all of it in ceramic and mixed media and most referencing Shakespearean characters; Viola from Twelfth Night becomes muse for numerous works.

The artist was born and raised in Chicago and earned a B.A. from the University of Illinois. Later, she obtained an MFA at SUNY New Paltz in 1993 and went on to receive a series of public art commissions and several artist residencies. Hudson Valley projects include the Morse School Mural and Mill Street Loft Mural, both in Poughkeepsie; the Ulster County Poorhouse Memorial in New Paltz; the Anderson School for Autism in Rosendale, New York; and a 60-foot concrete whale on the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie.

Sigunick was, until recently, an adjunct professor at Dutchess Community College, where she taught for 10 years. She now maintains a full-time studio practice at her home in Cragsmoor, New York.

Theo Ganz Studio is at 149 Main St. in Beacon. For more information, visit, email [email protected] or call 917-318-2239.
