What an exciting opening event for my solo exhibit "Vista" at the Bakersfield Museum of Art, Bakersfield, California. It was a pleasure introducing my exhibition and the process that led to it to a large audience of donors and supporters of the museum on the opening night.
"Vista" is a site-specific painting installation that was created during several trips to the fascinating city of Bakersfield in Kern County, CA, almost mid-way between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The city is undergoing massive economic, environmental, and demographic transitions; my exhibition “Vista” dives deep into the complex landscape, with the local oil industry-based economy on the one hand and the ecological preservation and restoration efforts on the other.
Curator: Rachel McCullah Wainwright
