“My ceramic figures embody the personalities of familiar souls that all people may recognize, regardless of where they grew up. Each figure is an expression of a unique personality that tells a story through adornment, symbolism, and gesture.”
The ceramic works in Kathlyn Avila’s “No Ordinary Woman” draw on Avila’s own life and the memorable characters she has known. Avila hopes her figures will “rekindle visitors’ memories of personal histories, real, imagined, and embellished.”
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 10, 6:30-8:00 pm
