First, Latino Arts, Inc. presents Luz Angela Crawford’s exhibition “Contemporary Inspirations from Ancient South American Pottery.” A Columbia native, Crawford bases her art on pottery derived from century-old techniques inspired by the Gaumbian of the north-central Andes Mountains, who hand make vessels without a potter’s wheel. Crawford expanded and refined their ancient traditions by adding expertise from ceramic studies in America, Italy and Spain.
