This fall, AMSET will exhibit the works of artists Shawne Major and Angélica Delfina Vásquez Cruz. Shawne Major is an American mixed media artist, who creates two-dimensional hangings and three-dimensional sculptures. Through her mixed media collages, she explores our perceptions of reality and how they are influenced by dreams, memory, superstition, religious bias, prejudice and fear.
Angélica Delfina Vásquez Cruz, also known as the Ceramista del Preciosismo, is a potter from Santa Maria Atzompa, Oaxaca, Mexico. Her parents, Delfina Cruz Díaz and Ernesto Vásquez Reyes, taught her how to create toys, jars, pots and pans. She also studied with Mexican artist Teodora Blanco. In 1978, Cruz began creating her own work based on Oaxacan mythology, culture and folklore.
This fall’s Café Arts exhibition showcases the work of local photographer Kim Willard. Kim’s new body of work focuses on images of flowers taken with her cell phone and transformed through filters. She embraces the saying “the best camera is the one you have with you.” By manipulating the colors and backgrounds of her images, she creates surreal, over saturated images that assume a painterly quality.
