Creative Voices - Featuring Lorrie Garcia

YouTube - Harwood Museum


The Harwood Museum of Art presents the Creative Voices series of artist interviews that bring the hidden treasures of their work, their process, and their experience as an artist to light.

 

Lorrie Garcia is one of the talented artists participating in the Las Santeras exhibition at the Harwood Museum of Art. Join co-curator Gustavo Victor Goler as he and Garcia explore how she came to be a participant in Spanish Market, who taught her to carve and how she uses her art to interpret her spirituality.

The Albuquerque Journal writes, "Garcia’s artwork can be found in churches, museums and private collections around the U.S. and other countries, but she says the most rewarding and humbling validation of her work comes from her former students, her family and her close friends who continue to support her. Garcia has won many awards and values all of them, but attaches special importance to the Archbishop’s Award, which she has won twice." https://www.abqjournal.com/1445021/santera-stands-strong-ex-pentildeasco-artisans-see-spanish-market-cancellation-as-temporary-setback.html
