Schweinfurth - Conveying Emotions in ClayAuburn, NY (May 11, 2023) – Syracuse-area native Magda Gluszek has always been drawn to the narrative aspect of figurative artwork, expressing emotions through the faces and hands she creates out of clay. “I think that face and hands are the places that we automatically most often look when we're trying to understand someone's emotional state or the story that they are telling us,” she said. “We communicate so many things in our facial expressions and the ways in which we gesture or pose our hands.”

Conveying emotions in clay is the focus of a three-day workshop Gluszek, who grew up in Liverpool, is teaching June 23-25, 2023, at the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, NY. In the workshop, “Sculpting Heads: Let’s Get Expressive!”, students will sculpt a head and accompanying hand that captures an expression.
