Art Show, Sculpture
"Soul and Transformation" Art Exhibition at Yosemite Fine Art Gallery
February 22 – February 29 2020, Yosemite Fine Art Gallery presents the art of Fresno native Katerina Maria Stojanovski, master sculptor and artist, in a solo exhibition “Soul and Transformation.” Through her figurative bronze sculptures, Katerina Maria combines a celebration of human experience with a probe into the deeper questions of soul, perception, and time, noting their often complex and deeply mystifying interrelationship with each other. Katerina Maria’s artwork has been exhibited at international art shows, galleries, churches, museums, and public and private collections. Her bronze sculpture “The Sparrow” is in the Vatican private collection of Pope Francis. At present, Katerina is completing a commission for the movie Cawdor, a film based on the work of Robertson Jeffers. For the past 15 years as an art educator, Katerina has been influencing and guiding young students with her knowledge and experience throughout the Central Valley.
