Join Northern Clay Center for a presentation by the 2019 Summer McKnight Resident Artist, Leandra Urrutia, in the NCC Library. This event is free and open to the public but pre-registration is appreciated as seating is limited. Urrutia is influenced by the rich culture and traditions of her Mexican-American heritage. In particular, artifacts and folklore surrounding Dr. Aureliano Urrutia, a controversial and legendary San Antonian, inspired an interest in the figure that continues to this day. Urrutia is a three-dimensional specialist who works predominately in clay. Her art addresses balance in regard to intimacy, attraction, repulsion, aging, and perseverance. Her building expertise ranges from trompe l’oeil to abstraction, with technical proficiencies that encompass image transfer and module making.
