April features Gallery member Lisa Arata sculpting her whimsical people. Lisa calls her pieces “Grannies” but they are not all little old lady figures.

Then using colorful acrylic paints and sometimes beads and other things, each figure is made unique. Lisa experiments with armatures, wrestling them into shape, and is always learning how to work the clay into something with wit and personality.
