St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center will present "Wings & Snow: A World of Masks" at Sophie’s Kensington Gallery and Sophie’s El Cajon Gallery.

The show will run from Dec. 2 – 30, with a public reception at the Kensington Gallery on Dec. 2 from 5 to 8 p.m., and at the El Cajon Gallery on Dec. 8 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Wings & Snow celebrates the holiday season with a collection of masks in a variety of media including clay, fused glass, paint, mosaics, palm fronds and repurposed jewels.

The show is inspired by Philip Colon, who painted at Sophie’s Gallery for many years. His passion for world cultures inspired colorful interpretations of masks from a variety of countries. When Philip’s family donated his personal collection of masks to Sophie’s Galleries, St. Madeleine’s artists transformed them with mosaics and paint. Other masks were formed with clay in our ceramics and fused glass departments.

Guest artists include Carol Minear, a local Kensington artist who uses palm fronds to create characters, and Maureen Robbins, an artist from Rochester, New York, who creates jeweled masks.

Sophie's Kensignton Gallery: 4168 Adams Avenue, San Diego
Sophie's El Cajon Gallery: 109 Rea Avenue, El Cajon
