Erika Navarrete: Moments Between
June 30th – July 30th, 2010
Reception: Friday, July 2nd, 6-8pm
Throughout the month of July, Arts Visalia will feature recent paintings and drawings by Erika Navarrete in a solo exhibition titled Moments Between. Navarrete’s work rests upon the tradition of figurative and narrative painting as she creates evocative scenes laden with mystery and ambiguity, placing the viewer in the duel role of participant in and voyeur to a quiet drama of seemingly everyday moments. Where one image will confront the viewer with an uncomfortable moment of tension, the next offers a whimsical release.
A Visalia native, Navarrete attended College of the Sequoias before going on to receive bachelors and masters degrees in fine arts from the Kansas City Art Institute and the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, respectively. She resides in Salem, Oregon.
