Amie Rangel's Solo Exhibition at Arts Visalia
In October of 2012, Arts Visalia will present The Whey (way) n., to Center, a major solo exhibition by artist Amie T. Rangel. This exhibition will unveil a major new group of works developed over the past year in which Rangel has explored the interior space and atmosphere of a Central California dairy facility. Rooted in the traditional practice of observational drawing, Rangel's lastest works transend representation, extending into the realm of meditative, spiritual contemplation.
In 2005 she graduated from California State University, Long Beach, with a BFA in Drawing/Painting and Printmaking (magna cum laude). She studied lithography at the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, Indiana, then entered the Drawing and Intermedia program at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. In 2008 she won an international award from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, as well as scholarships from the Alberta Foundation.
The opening reception is on Friday, 10/5, from 6 - 8 PM, & the show runs until 10/3 - 10/27. Arts Visalia is located at 214 East Oak Avenue, in Visalia, CA. (I'm inordinately proud to say that Amie was one of my former students. RS)
