The Latest from American Women Artists

Carrie Waller Abundance

As a part of our 2021 virtual Symposium on Women in the Arts, AWA presents a sculpture studio tour with AWA Master-Signature Member Angela Mia De la Vega. Angela is an Elected Member of the National Sculpture Society and an Art Renewal Center Living Master. Awards include Best in Show and Best 3D Work (AWA) and The Purchase Award by the ARC Museum. Her sculptures are publicly installed across the USA and privately collected throughout the globe. 

“I sculpt compositions that tell love stories, either those of others or my own. I like to imagine this as a bridge of humanity that connects my heart with that of another,” shared Angela. “Each sculpture begins as dramatic light and shadows over form. Unique details then deliver a responding body that listens as a live face does. Upon signing my works in clay, it is difficult to resist the thrill of creation. I have a sense that nothing is finalized; it continues to develop and grow, like ourselves.” –Angela Mia De la Vega
