The Alumni Gallery exhibits works by alumni from all of PAFA’s matriculating programs. By building connections between PAFA’s alumni and current students, these exhibitions highlight the histories, lineages, and legacies shared by the school community. Located within the Historic Landmark Building, the Alumni Gallery offers a contemporary view of PAFA’s longstanding traditions in art-making.
The Alumni Gallery is always free and open to the public.
PAFA Alumni Gallery, Historic Landmark Building
Inspired by the sea, Hagan’s work is informed by extensive research down to magnifying the networking of micro marine organisms, our planet's champion primary producers. While she shares the richness of our diverse environment with each series and project, it is the universal rhythm connecting life that remains a constant in her practice. This interdependence has allowed all communities to thrive for eons. She celebrates this life force in her vast ceramic range from glistening intricate micro marine architecture to primitive pit-fired sculpture embodying an ancient language.
