In honor of Beryl Gwen Curschmann the Arts Council of Princeton will have a showing and sale of her collection. Beryl took classes at Princeton University under the tutelage of Toshiko Takaezu in the 1970’s. She built a studio with her husband Michael and enjoyed travelling and collecting all aspects of ceramics. Michael, who passed away in October, donated pieces from their collection to ACP. The collection will be on display in the Sands Gallery on December 2, and then will move to the Taplin Gallery. The Arts Council of Princeton is proud to display their collection in Beryl’s memory.
