Guest Lecture by Dora Natella, Juror for the Del Mar College 52nd Annual National Drawing and Small Sculpture Show

Raised and educated in Italy, Dora Natella studied sculpture in the classical tradition at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples. She moved to the United States in her 20s for advanced studies in bronze casting techniques and the opportunity to immerse herself in a new culture with fewer direct connections to a classical past. Natella then earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from Western Michigan University with her career focused both on teaching at the collegiate level and her own work in the studio. She currently serves as a faculty member at Indiana University, South Bend, and is a National Sculpture Society Fellow. In the past, Natella has entered her work in the annual Del Mar College Department of Art and Drama National Drawing and Small Sculpture Show and will serve as this year’s juror for the 52nd annual show, which opens Feb. 16. While in Corpus Christi to select the final pieces for the exhibit, Natella will present a lecture about her own work, which has won many awards, been exhibited across the country and resides in several private and public collections in Venezuela, Italy and the United States. Visit the artist’s website at doranatella.com/ to learn more about her work.

  • Thursday, Feb. 1, 10 a.m., Richardson Performance Hall, Del Mar College East Campus, Kosar at Ayers Street, free.
