The Communication Arts Technology Program invites you to visit the Krantz Art Gallery this month to see the art of Rie Muñoz. Her art is full of humor, whimsy, and a unique portrayal of life in Alaska.
Included in her more than 500 pieces of art there is something to be learned
about Alaska, its people, traditions, customs and unique culture diversity.
In the body of work exhibited in the Krantz Gallery you will learn something of Rie’s observations and love of Alaska and its people through her depictions of the fishing industry,
opportunities for outdoor activities, wildlife, folklore, customs and faith.
We have brought a small sampling of her limited edition prints, including serigraphs, silk screens, and watercolor from the personal collection of Karen Miner.
Some are more unusual than others, but they are all filled
with a positive outlook and a style that is clearly expressive and unique to Rie herself.
There will be an Opening Reception this Friday, August 26, from 5 – 8 pm. Refreshments will be served.
The exhibit runs from August 22 – September 23, 2016. The Krantz Art Gallery is located on the 1st floor of Chestnut Hall, room 116, on the downtown campus of Jefferson Community & Technical College at the at the corner of First and Chestnut Streets.
The exhibit is open Monday through Thursday 8 am – 5 pm
and Friday's from 9 am – 12 noon.
