Classic Meets Folk Art

February 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Scripps College, Hampton Dining Room

Fine Arts Foundation

Scripps College Fine Arts Foundation hosts “Classic Meets Folk Art” with FAF board members and mosaic artists Alba Cisneros and Cathy Garcia, the featured presenters on Wednesday, February 13 at 2 p.m. in Hampton Dining Room. Join Alba and Cathy as they discuss their own distinctive styles and their recent collaboration on a public art piece in Pomona, then visit with these two artists during an informal tea following the program.
Alba is classically trained and worked for over 17 years with Millard Sheets, Denis O’Connor and Sue Lautmann Hertel ’52, helping to complete over 80 large-scale mosaic murals for Home Savings and Loan of America. She has created numerous projects of her own which our local communities prize and enjoy. Alba is currently completing a Karl Benjamin project at Mt. San Antonio College.
Cathy calls herself a “folk artist” or an artist with no formal training. She began working on projects with an ecological bent 16 years ago–mainly to keep trash out of landfills–beginning with recycling lamps and broken pottery, then branching out to create human busts and animal figures. Cathy has participated in over 40 one-woman and group shows in the Southland as well as contributed to local public art projects.
This event is free and open to the public.
