Expressions of Visual Experience-MoonTree Gallery
For Rosie Mireles, her many years of traveling, studying the history of art and exploring the different mediums of painting have influenced her life. Her art will be on display November 18, 2017 through January 5, 2018. The reception to welcome her to MoonTree Gallery will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST.
Rosie was born in Texas but has lived in Chicago most of her life. She also lived in Miami, Florida while being a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines. While working for the airlines, she had the opportunity to travel to Italy, Portugal, Spain, Greece, Germany, Egypt, Paris, London, the Americas and the Caribbean. During her travels she visited many art museums and some of the artists' studios including Dali, El Greco Frida Kalo and Diego Rivera. Thus, began her love of art and art history. During her time off in Chicago, she went to the University of Illinois where she studied studio arts, the pyschology of color and the different styles of painting and photography. These are the influences of her life. The last eighteen years were spent on the streets of Chicago as a police officer and was again influenced by the daily comings and goings of the colorful neighborhoods where she worked and lived.
Her art is a mixture of emotion and a passionate expression of life through color and application. Rosie paints in pastels and acrylic. Her earlier paintings were a combination of acrylic and oil.
Rosie's paintings have been exhibited at: The Heartland Artists Gallery, the South Bend Museum of Arts, The Jewish Federation in South Bend, South Bend Civic Theatre, The Colfax Cultural Center, and the CircaArts Gallery.
