The Albion College Art and Art History Department is pleased to present artist and Albion Alumna, Angie Redmond 09'. Her incredible work titled, "Never a Bad Hair Day", is on display in the Munro Gallery, at Bobbitt Visual Arts Center.
Angie Redmond Artist is a figurative and portrait artist from Chicago, IL. She received her Masters of the Science degree in Digital Art from Knowledge Systems Institute in Skokie, IL and a Bachelor of the Arts degree in Studio Art (emphasizing in oil painting) from Albion College in Albion MI. Her pieces contain both oil paintings and drawings.
She uses her personal experiences to focus her artwork on various social issues within a culture. For example, the subject of natural African American hair is a reoccurring theme within her art. Having natural hair herself, she has faced a lot of ridicule and negative views towards her coils. Drawing from those experiences she creates paintings and drawings to celebrate natural hair for its unique distinctiveness and beauty. She also explores topics that affect her community; such as the violence throughout Chicago and our ability to make the situation better.
Redmond's exhibition will be on display through November 18th, 2017. You can meet the artist herself in a special talk on Saturday, October 21st from 12:00 to 2:00 PM in the gallery. #art #painting #angieredmondartist #munro #arthistory #albioncollege #albion #fineart #thefinearts #color
