The Emerging Artist Series aims to provide young artists, who might not have a large enough body of work to fill the Craddock-Terry Gallery, with an opportunity to showcase their work.

These smaller exhibitions are displayed in our Studio 109 Gallery. Exhibition history is a key component to succeeding as a professional artist. The ability to add a solo exhibition to their CV greatly increases an artist’s ability to secure further exhibitions. This program enables early career artists to build their exhibition history, gain exposure, and sell their work.

August’s Emerging Artist

MARIANNETTE OYOLA

“Dióko”

Regardless of medium usage, Mariannette Oyola’s work seeks to evoke three main experiences: awe, curiosity, and wonder.  Despite the fact that she utilizes a great number of different methods to explore the extent of her artistic expression, her favorite mediums include UV resin casting, traditional inking, watercolor, and digital painting. Unifying themes include humans, animals, and nature, and often times, how to portray the mentioned as characters.  She draws inspiration from biblical language, firstly, then, from music compositions, nature, philosophy, apologetics, and theology. Through different mediums, Oyola’s work is meant to cause an aesthetic experience, be it through self-identification, questions, or personal interpretation of the subject matter presented.
