Art facilitates communication of events, ideas and emotions. Making art,
looking at art and exhibiting art is a process that informs us about who
we are and the climate of the diverse culture we are living in. Art is
a fundamental component of our community and plays a distinct role in
our society. The visual art enriches our lives, expands our awareness,
and promotes understanding. In the course of being an artist, mentor and
curator I have experienced various perspectives of those participating
in the culture of the creative aspect of our society.
In the educational arena, art is an instrument for presenting people paths
to incorporating their own creativity into their own lives. Colleges and
universities play an important role in the legitimization and assertion
of culture, and the responsibility of a university gallery is to be a
vehicle for this kind of interpretation. For university students, faculty
and staff, the gallery is an integral part of their personal and professional
development. The art gallery offers fresh challenges and acts as a catalyst
in comprehending new aesthetic and intellectual topics.
It is important to provide a constructive environment for introducing
artistic ideas to the viewer. I seek out artists whose works maintain
viable intentions and I present those works with an equivalent visual
integrity. Cultivating creative and critical potentials engage gallery
participants in an aesthetic and theatrical dialogue. In effectively enhanced
circumstances educational and culture events can effect a regional cultural
community to embrace panel discussions, concert series and additional
performance based art activities prepared in partnership with visual organizations.
At any location I have the opportunity to design exhibitions and events
for I am resolute to distribute all manner of art to a expansive audience.
