In 1980, Marks came to Rochester to teach a semester at Rochester Institute of Technology and this piece was awarded the purchase prize at the Gallery’s Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibition. The same year he was featured in the national Ceramics Monthly and was quoted as saying, “Clay is a material that is engaging to me because of its resistance to the imposition of monologue and its insistence on dialogue. I inform it as much as it informs me.” [Label text from It Came From the Vault exhibition, 2013]", "Dedication" : "Marion Stratton Gould Fund; Memorial Art Gallery Purchase Award, 1980 Rochester - Finger Lakes Exhibition", "Copyright_Type" : "Copyright Assigned to MAG", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "Sculpture", "Creation_Place2" : "American", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/80.45_A2.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/80.45_A2.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/80.45_A2.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/80.45_A2.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "39370", "Image_Type" : "digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
