Telluride Arts Presents:
Alicia Noguiera and Kellie Day: New exhibits at the Wilkinson Public Library
Opening for Telluride Art Walk on September 5, 5-8pm
Exhibits will run through the fall.
On September 5, 2013, Two new exhibits will open at the Wilkinson Public Library.
In the upstairs stacks, there is a series of new works by Alicia Noguiera.
Alicia Nogueira is a Brazilian-born artist who has made Telluride her home. For the exhibit, in the upstairs room of the Library, the artist collected local flora and added fantastical colors, creating an effect that is part naturalistic, part psychedelic.
Alicia Nogueira is a Telluride based artist, entrepreneur, filmmaker and yogini. Born in Brazil, she moved to California to study Film and Video at CalArts, then at San Francisco Art Institute, where, she received a BFA in 1988. In SF she worked in the industry and pursued her video-art and multimedia sculptures, developing several solo art exhibits. Her early work is represented in the film and video archives of UC Berkeley and MIT.
In 1993, Alicia moved to Telluride where she founded BaliDog.com, a yoga clothing company creating hand-painted designs. Mother of Olivia, now 16, Alicia teaches Iyengar yoga and is a certified massage & Watsu therapist
With the premiere of her film, "Woodsy," at the 2010 Telluride MountainFilm Festival, Alicia reconnects with the film community pursuing a lifelong dream of creating films that inspire and expand consciousness, connecting us to a higher purpose.
Fusing talents, she is now dedicating time to paint, using air, colors and nature, creating a playful first time impression on paper and canvas
In the stairwell, there are mixed media acrylic and collage works on canvas by Kellie Day.
The exhibit, Images of Summer, includes sunflowers, bicycles and images of summer gone by that lift the spirit and inspire. Paintings are full of movement, freedom and fun.
Kellie Day’s work is taken from moments of her life, whether playing, or having her socks knocked off by some gorgeous moment, she notices little things, and they move her.
She likes the way words mix with images, and often adds hidden pieces to her paintings that can be serendipitous to the viewer. Look for saucy words and quirky pictures.
Her artistic medium is mixed media on canvas. The process of adhering materials to the canvas distorts whatever she has painted in unexpected ways. She loves this out-of-control element.
Kellie has lived in Ridgway, Colorado since 1998.
The exhibit officially opens for Telluride Art Walk on Thursday, September 5 from 5-8pm, and will run through the fall.
