The Taos Ceramics Center Gallery is delighted to present the powerful ceramic sculptures of Sara Lee D'Alessandro alongside the  imaginative desert landscapes of Kari Bell, April 16 thru June 4. From the moment you enter the gallery you will witness the emergence of mind, whimsy, energy, and beauty.    

D'Alessandro's home and studio, Mudwasp, is located in scenic Cuba, NM. She is a graduate of Pratt Institute and a lifelong artist who has exhibited her work for nearly fifty years and is in private and public collections throughout the US. For many years, D'Alessandro was a scenic artist working on Broadway sets and for the Metropolitan Opera House. Today, she works exclusively in clay and many of her pieces are created and intended for outdoor installation. D'Alessandro is an active member of the New Mexico Potters and Clay Artists.
