Geneva, N.Y.—Anna Maria Hattendorf, of Newport, a member of the William Smith class of 2002, has been selected to participate in a juried art show sponsored by the Newport Art Museum, Newport, R.I. Hattendorf's bronze sculpture “Pitch and Thrust” will be in the 14th Annual Members' Juried Exhibition at the Newport Art Museum through Wednesday, March 21. The sculpture was produced while she was taking Art 315, Sculpture Workshop, taught by A. E. Ted Aub, professor of art at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
“Pitch and Thrust,” Hattendorf's first bronze casting, is about the relationship between abstract figures and positive versus negative space. Of two genderless figures, the sculpture explores how by being individuals and by relying on one another they create movement and space relationships. The base is approximately 13 inches long by 6 inches wide and the two figures measure 10 inches long by 6 inches wide by 10 inches high.
Last winter Hattendorf spent a term studying in Pietrasanta, Italy, taking classes in Italian language, studio art, and art history, as part of the Colleges' study abroad program.
Hattendorf is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. John Hattendorf, of Newport, R.I.
