Chris Antemann (BFA ’95) received $35,000 through the Virginia A. Groot Foundation Grant for her porcelain figurines. Represented by Ferrin Gallery, Antemann exhibited recent sculpture and photography from her series “Battle of the Britches” at Art Chicago through May 3, 2010.

Antemann creates contemporary works in porcelain dealing with intimacy, love, and power in post-modern relationships. Her work is inspired by eighteenth-century porcelain figurines, their place in the home, and the social contexts that are inherited by such materials and history.
