#ArtLitPhx: Artist Lecture with Patti Warashina and Transitory Conversations Exhibition

Join us for an Artist lecture with Patti Warashina on Saturday, May 12th from 6:30- 7:30 pm in the Dobson lecture hall at Mesa Arts Center, Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum (1 E Main St, Mesa, AZ 85201).  Warashina’s Transitory Conversations exhibition opening reception will be May 11 from 7:00-10:00 pm. The exhibition will be at Mesa Arts Center from April 13th through August 5th.

With a career spanning over 55 years, Washington State artist Patti Warashina has established herself as an artistic icon, especially in the media of ceramics. She uses the human figure as a vehicle to portray what she draws from her own daily life experiences, as well as the absurdities and foibles from the civilization in which we live. Her characters become the actors in her introspective narratives and the viewer becomes the voyeur. In most of her current work, the abstract quality of the surfaces erases and denies the identification of time and place, speaking to the universal quirks of all human nature. However, recently the absurdity of the current world has been a fascinating source of ideas for her to explore.
