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.
Septembert’s Emerging Artist
“Time Capsule Canvas: Preserving Fleeting Moments in Peru”
Amber Rabie took her first formal painting class in 2015, where she discovered her affinity for oil paints. Most of her paintings are based on photos she’s taken, and the resulting style manifests as a mix of realism and abstract art. Amber believes that beauty exists everywhere, and that her challenge as a painter is to capture and portray that beauty on canvas. Her favorite subjects are living things, with an emphasis on the human form. She holds two Bachelor of Science degrees; one in Studio Art, and one in Graphic design. Amber one day hopes to use her talent and training to serve in some capacity overseas.
She intends on donating a portion of the proceeds of any art sold to a medical facility in the Amazon, where an American woman named Linnea Smith, MD, has established a facility and trained local people to provide medical care to very remote villages and people living along the Amazon River in Peru.
