Edith Garcia with Viola Frey's sculpture Woman with Elbow on Raised Knee (1994) at the Oakland Museum of California

California College of the Arts (CCA) is pleased to announce artist and visual critic Edith Garcia is the 2015–16 Viola Frey Distinguished Visiting Professor. Garcia is a sculptor, installation artist, and author noted for her innovative use of clay and haunting forms that reinterpret the figure. She has shown throughout the United States, Mexico, and Italy.

This fall she will teach Craft Theory and other courses; she will also give a free public lecture, “My Life in Sculpture,” at Nahl Hall on the Oakland campus on October 7 at 7:30 p.m.

Garcia is engaged in scholarship around “the absence and presence of human form” in figurative ceramics. As visiting professor she will have full access to the Viola Frey Archives at Artists’ Legacy Foundation in Oakland, a resource for scholars, curators, and the general public. Garcia plans to research a not widely known period of Frey’s work produced in the late 1970s.
