Armando the Award Painter

For many years, ceramicist Armando de la Rocha has been jumping off the pottery wheel on his Santa Barbara Street porch to paint our Indy Awards, which were given out to the S.B. theater world’s brightest stars this past Monday. An artist in town since 1997, De la Rocha, who is originally from Guadalajara, also teaches at Roosevelt and Crane schools, and has worked the kilns at SBCC over the years, as well. You can find his Mexican-influenced, skeleton-laden pottery down at the beach show on Cabrillo Boulevard every Sunday, or see him in action tonight, Thursday, May 26, when he’s conquering clay outside of the Granada Theatre from 5-8:30 p.m. as part of Santa Barbara Downtown’s Live Art & Wine Tour.
