Ninth Annual Panorama Invitational Exhibit

PANORAMA INVITATIONAL 2013

Every year for the past nine years high school art teachers from around Kern County choose artwork made by their students to be exhibited in the Panorama Invitational at Bakersfield College’s Jones Gallery. The young artists see their work in a professional venue. They also see artwork their peers are making from other schools. Both these opportunities can have a huge impact on the subsequent work they produce as well as a sense of pride in the work they do.

In Tandem: Matthew Rangel and Amie Rangel
September 3, 2012, 6:45 pm
Filed under: 2012/2013 exhibits

The first exhibit of the Fall 2012 quarter features the work of artists Amie and Matthew Rangel. The Rangels are a married couple who live, work, and make art in Visalia, California. http://rangelstudio.com/

Living and working together one would expect to see similarities in their work. And one does in the subtle use of color, the precise, elegant drawing, and attention to craft.  The work in this exhibit shows both their interest in ‘place’.

Amie’s large scale drawings on linen are elegant visual interpretations of impersonal seeming interiors. The drawings in this body of work were done on site in ‘agricultural facilities’ near where she was living at the time. According to Amie, ” The purpose of my work is not to find a definitive meaning, singular answer, or solution to the complex structure of institutional frameworks, but to raise awareness of spatial constructs within modern human society.”

Matthew’s work is about a connection with the landscape, were he is not just an observer but also a participant.  In 2008 Matthew made a pilgrimage from his parents’ street to the summit of the Black Kaweah in the Sierra Nevada range. Lithographs, large scale drawings, topographic.maps, notes record the journey documenting encounters with the place with people who inhabit the place.

Matthew says, “In an effort to demonstrate meaning within our connection to land, my work embodies physical aspects of landscape through personal narrative. This I believe enables us to develop a deep-lasting sense of place.”

In Tandem: Matthew Rangel, Amie Rangel opens September 13 and runs through October 4, 2012.

The opening reception is September 13, 2012, 5:30 – 7:00 pm. Parking during the opening reception  is free in the lot in front of the library.

Gallery Hours are Mondays through Thursdays 1:00 – 4:00 pm. during the exhibition run.
