Kelley S. Hestir
Las Cruces, New Mexico
Kelley S. Hestir, NMSU Community CollegeKelley S. Hestir is a nationally recognized artist focusing primarily in sculpture of various media including bronze, glass, clay, polymers, performance and light & sound installations. An accomplished illustrator and graphic designer, Kelley has extensive experience in architectural concept, publication and museum exhibit design, working in both digital and natural media. Her current sculptural work focuses on allegorical expressions of animals and the human form: "I've never been constrained by media and feel comfortable working in the newest and the oldest materials. My interest and imagery is inspired by nature - landscapes, animals, organisms - my love of craftsmanship and a deep connection to art/history."

Kelley has an MFA from the University of Hawaii where she taught sculpture for six years. She currently teaches at the NMSU Doña Ana Community College in Las Cruces. She is a founding member of Art Forms Artists Association of New Mexico and "For the Love of Arts Month" (soon to celebrate its 14th year) and is a current member of the West End Art Depot artist cooperative.

Kelley exhibits internationally, has numerous public and private commissions and is best known in the region as concept artist, site designer and sculptor of the "Bataan Death March Memorial" at Veterans Park in Las Cruces, NM, for which she received the Doña Ana Arts Council 2012 Art in Public Places.

Kelley's work can be seen at the Adobe Patio Gallery and Main Street Gallery in Las Cruces and on line at www.kelleyhestirsculpture.com or www.bataandeathmarchmemorial.com.
