Valerie Greene, Artist/Owner

"Art cannot be separated from life. It is the expression of the greatest need of which life is capable, and we value art not because of the skilled product, but because of the revelation of a life's experience."

“Beginnings”
by Erica Rodriguez


Opens July 8 – Aug 2, 2016

Artist Reception / Third Thursday Arthop – July 21, 5-8pm.


This exhibit is composed of works inspired by my own experiences and subconscious reality. Moments such as loss, fertility, and letting go of negativity are still things I'm currently learning to accept as part of life, but these subtle but pivotal moments are what made me grow as a woman in her 20s.

Erica graduated from Fresno State (cum laude) with a BA degree in Studio Art, where she studied art history, figure drawing and painting. Her works have been recognized in local, regional and national juried shows such as the Wo-man-ful-ly exhibit in Arts Visalia and ¡Viva La MuXer! Women's Exhibit Invitational at Arte Américas. She was the 2012 recipient of the Curator's Choice Award in Nudes in November, an annual exhibit held in Chris Sorensen Studio. While she is a Fresno native, Erica's roots derive from Nicaragua.
