Rose B. Simpson

Thursday, October 8, 2015
5:30pm Reception
6:30pm Presentation and Q&A
WNMU Light Hall Theater
Rose B. Simpson, an internationally active mixed media contemporary artist from Santa Clara Pueblo, NM, will present her work and collaborate with students at Western New Mexico University (WNMU), as the Inaugural Edwina and Charles Milner Women in the Arts Lecture Series event.

Rose studied at the University of New Mexico, and the Institute of American Indian Arts, where she received her B.F. A. in Studio Arts in 2007, and holds an Honors M.F.A. in ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011.

Being from both Indigenous and European descent, with art and philosophy primary in both families, she applies her abilities in ceramic and mixed media sculpture, installation, drawing, aerosol painting, writing, music, and performance to finding the relationship between aesthetic expression and the everyday life.

I am thrilled to be able to present Rose Simpson as a way to kick off this exciting new Lecture Series featuring women artists from around the country, stated Faye McCalmont, WNMU Cultural Affairs. She is young, innovative, inspiring and pushing the boundaries of contemporary art. Students in Grant County will have the opportunity to experience her vibrancy first hand through the events on Oct 8-10.
