Johanna San Inocencio’s studies at Tennessee Tech University’s Appalachian Center for Craft will culminate in her bachelor of fine arts senior thesis exhibition this month.
Her exhibition in clay, Cultural TouchStones, will be in the North Windows Gallery from Tuesday, April 17, until Monday, April 23. There will be a reception with the artist from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 21, in the gallery.
The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.
The pieces are an expression of cultural identity and elements of nature. San Inocencio uses the Cuerda Seca technique to create a stained-glass effect in her humble clay vessels to impart a sense of the mystical. She combines culture, nature, spirit and clay to reflect the diversity of humankind.
The Appalachian Center for Craft is conveniently located approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at Exit 273 (Smithville/McMinnville). Go south on Hwy. 56; turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center.
