She served as docent for the American Museum of Ceramic Art and she curated numerous shows for her students.

“Ms. Balogh is an artist with unusual promise. She is deeply committed to making art and arts relevance to the contemporary sociopolitical world. Underlying her belief in traditional and more current technical methods is a very broad conceptual outlook. Her work seems to originate in a European view of art that is conceptual grant in style and boldly romantic in character.”            Roland Reiss Professor of Art and Benezet Professor of Humanities, Emeritus
