Winter Open Studios: Anna Valdez

Anna Valdez combines her academic background in anthropology and video to make paintings about personal identity, but also cultural meaning.  Currently, she is working on various narratives that explore my own traditions and history through a visual format. This process has led her to rely on photographs, stories, family recipes, horticulture, and the tradition of crafting as something concrete in order to construct my autobiography. She considers this examination to be a rite of passage into a globalized society while simultaneously finding her niche within.

Drop by Norton Factory’s Winter Open Studios on Saturday, December 6 from 4 – 9pm to see Anna’s and 20 other artists’ work.
