FC9 Gallery Announces Teresa Vazquez, “LoveLit” as February Featured Artist
December 30th, 2017
Indianapolis, IN—The Full Circle Nine Gallery (FC9) is proud to announce Teresa Vazquez, and her show, “LoveLit” as the featured artist for the February First Friday Art Tour, on Friday February 2nd. The show will premiere 6-9pm, and admission is free.
“’LoveLit’ is about the happy accidents of life, like illumination or just good lighting,” said Vazquez, who has used “accidental,” or upcycled materials in this show. “With me, art is a must, every day. I have lived too long without it as a resource, and I no longer wish to live without it.” Vazquez has layered her pieces in a variety of wet and dry media, exploiting the layers, transparency, and light, to create complex love stories.
About Teresa Vazquez
Teresa Vazquez has an MFA in Art and Technology, from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, but stopped creating art for 13 years. She credits love, dreaming, and a bump on the head with returning her to art, and forcing her reinvention as an artist and as a person.
“’LoveLit’ asserts the power of Love and Light,” said Vazquez. “It represents a sojourn in a particular style of presentation that brings to mind stained glass windows, neon signs, flat screen displays, and our multidimensional lives and loves. ‘Lit’ has multiple meanings: Illumination and literary content and contexts.”
Vazquez readily acknowledges that artists often benefit from a generous amount of donations of discarded materials. “I was the beneficiary of such a trove of materials that my sweetheart recently scored at work. His quick thinking to salvage these materials resulted in an expression of love that will hopefully touch the sensibilities and hearts of Indianapolis art collectors.”
