Join us in the Upstairs Studios at Blue Star on First Thursday and First Friday from 6pm-10pm for the opening receptions of our CAM show.

We will be pairing works by artists Linda Perez and Audrey LeGalley to address the idea of worth and to build a discussion around why we value what we value.

About the artists:

Linda Perez became a ceramic artist in 2006 while simultaneously raising a herd of beef cattle on her South Texas ranch. Upon becoming a charter vendor of The Pearl Farmers Market in San Antonio in 2009, she began researching traditional ceramic cookware and integrating these vessels into her practice. Linda furthered her studies at the Southwest School of Art where she now teaches. She has also studied and held residencies at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Her custom designed and fabricated tableware can be found within Supper at Hotel Emma and Cured at The Pearl, among other notable Texas hot spots in San Antonio, Austin, and Marfa. She continues to live and work from her ranch where ceramics and cattle are a daily part of life.

Audrey LeGalley is a Texas-raised artist who utilizes mediums including porcelain and fibers to explore themes of anxiety, fragility and domesticity. Drawing on childhood memories and experiences she discusses familial relationships and emotional structures through sculptures and compositions. Recently, she has been recreating domestic objects out of porcelain to present a metaphor for fragility and fear. Audrey received her BFA from The Southwest School of Art in 2018 and was given the “Best in Show Award” for her work in the Senior Thesis exhibition. She is currently a resident at Clamp Light where she continues to develop and show her work.
