  • In Conversation is a curated series of discussions designed to celebrate and connect those who make art and those who love art! Breaking down the barriers between artist and art-appreciator, In Conversation delves into inspiration, studio practice, and artistic aspirations. Maria de Los Angeles, curator and artist featured in the Arts Council’s current exhibition A Voice to Be Heard, will join Timothy M. Andrews, art collector and major supporter of the Arts Council’s Artist-in-Residence program, for virtual conversation. Maria de Los Angeles is a New York-based artist who was born in Mexico and immigrated to Santa Rosa California in 2000 with her family. Her work is inspired by both personal experience and the larger political conversations surrounding migration. Maria earned her MFA from Yale School of Art in 2015, a BFA from Pratt Institute in 2013 and an associate’s degree in painting from Santa Rosa Junior College in 2010. Her work has been exhibited in the USA and abroad at venues, including Sonoma County Museum (Santa Rosa,CA), El Museo Del Barrio (Manhattan, NY), Casa de Las Americas (Habana, Cuba), and Los Angeles County Museum among others. Maria has had residencies at Mana Contemporary and El Museo del Barrio. Her awards include the Blair Dickinson Memorial Prize and the Community Action Partnership award in recognition of her artwork and role in her community. Her work is currently on view in the Arts Council’s Taplin Gallery through May 8, 2021.
