The art of Mardelle (Pocock) Espinoza of Stone Age II Studio in Denver is the featured exhibit at Prairie Winds Art Center during July. Espinoza is a former resident of Holyoke, and the Art Center is proud to display her sculpture and paintings.
Espinoza concentrates on stone sculpting, along with limited edition bronzes. Her work is inviting to touch and unify with what the artist has released from the stone pieces. Styles range from realistic-figurative to contemporary and abstract.
Alabaster is a favored stone, along with marble and others. She also paints landscapes and figurative subjects with pastels and acrylics. In addition to these mediums, she does custom picture framing and has her own sign business.
Espinoza has been exhibiting art for the past 35 years in shows such as the Loveland Sculpture Invitational, the Colorado Indian Market shows, the Phippen Memorial Show in Arizona, the Governor’s Invitational in Nebraska, South West Showcase in Wiesbaden, Germany, plus many local and regional shows in Colorado. Her work is also displayed in galleries in Taos, N.M., as well as Colorado and Nebraska.
Her first two sculpted pieces were selected by a Smithsonian curator to be displayed in a summer show in Central City. Recently, she showed with Foothills Gallery of Denver, Thunderbird Art Gallery in Greeley and with the Cattlemen’s Ball Association in Nebraska.
