Friday, November 7, 5 – 8pm
Working in a variety of mediums including installation, drawing, painting, and printmaking, Christa Dalien’s art explores the diverse relationships and interactions that we have with our surroundings. She is interested in folklore and mythology used to explain and interpret the unexplainable. Dalien searches through the tangible landscapes and structures that often show signs of wear, human impact and mystery, then reconstructs them into a visual emotional language. Christa Dalien is an artist and educator currently living in Santa Fe, NM with her husband, son and 2 cats. Her studio practice includes a variety of different mediums including installation, drawing, painting, and printmaking. Originally from Minnesota, she received her BFA in Painting in 2003. She received her MFA in printmaking from the University of Kansas, in 2007. She currently teaches Art History (remotely) for Washburn University in Topeka, KS and stays home with her son Arlo.
