RENO, NV – July 21, 2021 – Artist Selena Valenti cordially welcomes you to an evening reception at Reno Art Works Studio 2035 Gallery on August 19th, from 5-7 pm. This month long solo exhibition will feature a unique collection of surrealist oil paintings. Both original works and fine art limited editions will be on display and for sale with the artist in attendance.
Selena Valenti is a local artist who started drawing the moment she could hold a pencil. She received her B.F.A. from the prestigious Washington University in St. Louis and also studied at the Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy. Inspired by her travels, she is enamored with the natural world and fascinated by humanity’s history of attempting to understand its place within it. Her work illustrates the interconnectivity of all life through myth and psychology and by capturing nature’s infinite complexity. These exquisite depictions of unusual plants, animals & human anatomy on brilliant, jewel-toned color fields invite the viewer into a provocative and enthralling plane of reality. Selena renders this captivating universe through an innovative juxtaposition of abstraction and hyperrealism. Selena’s paintings have graced the walls of Marcus Ashley Gallery in South Lake Tahoe and the Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Art in Las Vegas. This showing, the artist’s first solo exhibition, represents her career’s evolution with a comprehensive catalog of her work thus far.
