Meet the Artist – Gina Telcocci: Involuntary Gestures & More
August 27, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Meet artist Gina Telcocci and view the exhibition Involuntary Gestures & More.
These sensuous sculptures of Gina Telcocci will be on view at Cafe Pasqual’s Gallery. Gina will be on hand to discuss and explain her enigmatic works of woven reed, wire, and paper float and hover mysteriously about the space.
Of her work, Telcocci says, “My impulse to do art is rooted in a love of the physical world, and an irresistible urge to make. I fashion things by hand using mostly simple, ancient techniques (basketry, joinery, sewing, amd weaving), which are profoundly rich in meaning and feeling.”
Gina recently returned to Santa Fe to live full-time after 2 decades in Oakland. Telcocci has received numerous grants and awards, including from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, Pollock/Krasner Foundation, and the City of Oakland, CA. Public commissions include Potrero Hill Library, San Francisco, CA, Albany Memorial Park, Albany, CA, Walnut Creek Library, Walnut Creek, CA, and UNM/Los Alamos, New Mexico. Her work has been exhibited across the U.S., in Mexico, and South Korea.
