Summer Rainfall
by
Sibylle Szaggars Redford
Main Gallery
August 5 - September 25
Summer Rainfall  is the culmination of over five years of collaborating with the monsoon rains of Northern New Mexico, the gentle rains of the Napa Valley and the mountain rains of Utah. The works in this exhibition represent Sibylle's continuing efforts to expand the vision of this collaboration through the use of various media; from Rain Paintings on watercolor paper, printing onto Silks and creating her Desert Silks, mixed media printing of intense radiant colors, to digital manipulation and photographic expressions laminated between plexi. In addition, you can experience her Rain Art Films on her website, and here at the Kimball Art Center.
With each interpretation of Original Rain Art, Sibylle has never lost her mission as an Environmental Multimedia Artist in order to raise awareness of our changing climate and weather patterns by presenting something beautiful through this collaboration of Artist and Rainfall.
