Join current exhibiting artist Leona Lazar for a discussion of her work in clay! The very nature of clay captivated Leona by its vitality and plasticity, inviting her to create figures with unique personalities and character. She will share the process used to build her exaggerated and expressive pieces as well some of the resources she uses to develop themes for bodies of work. Calling on universal issues and interests shared by the collective «woman,» she tells stories with strong statements about our humanism.
After a rich career as an exhibit designer/producer; working in arts administration for museums; and as the Executive Director of the Art Students League of Denver for eleven years, today Leona Lazar is a Colorado artist working in ceramic sculpture. Her credits include Supporting Member of Spark Gallery; recipient of the People’s Choice Award in the Best of Santa Fe Art District’s Artists; and First Place award from the Lakewood Cultural Center’s sculpture show. For the past two summers she was juried into Loveland, Colorado’s Sculpture in the Park festival. Her art is owned by private collectors and art centers.
Leona's exhibition Divas is on view in the McMahon Gallery through July 30.
