Magenta Gallery Exhibit Features Sculpted Ceramics and Handmade Jewelry

Carnelian and Agate

By Patricia Miller

The work of sculptor Annie Evans, whose exhibit with Patricia Miller opens December 6 at Magenta Gallery, focuses on human-animal hybrids that show we are but one of many animal species and related to all animals both physically and emotionally. Using animal bones and horns, Evans offers an imaginative leap to our connections to animals and the spirit world.

Her new series, The Boats,  represents our passage through this lifetime. Some of the boats hold a lone figure, some a man and a woman. Often the boats are fragile and broken, such as life can sometimes be.

All of Evans’s pieces are hand built with stoneware or earthenware clay. Each piece is glazed with oxide washes, underglazes, and glazes, giving layered and variegated colors. The surfaces are rough, offering depth and complexity to the finish.

“I am an Atlanta native and have had a lifelong interest in both psychology and art. I attended the Atlanta College of Art for two years and experimented with several art forms before discovering clay. My figures combine clay’s tactile, sensuous immediacy and my fascination with people. My graduate degree in developmental psychology, where I studied chimpanzees, is evident to the human-animal hybrid sculptures. San Miguel is now my home, and Mexican artifacts are appearing in some of my sculptures.”

Patricia Miller has been making jewelry for over 15 years in the US and also in San Miguel de Allende since moving here full-time. Before that, she sculptured copper garden art and developed a large wholesale jewelry business in the US.

Using colorful, elegant, and interesting stones, she is drawn to Mexican ones, especially Mexican opals, which are used extensively in her designs. Having been at Magenta Gallery for almost nine years, Miller designs and makes earrings, necklaces, and rings using silver and beautiful local stones.

This exhibit opens Thursday, December 6, 5–7pm. Magenta Gallery is located at Zacateros 26.
