Randee Ward—Guest Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Guest Artist Exhibit for November 2009: “Fragmented”

A Special Guest Artist Reception will be held Friday, November 13th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Randee Ward

Randee Ward’s creativity begins with her original photograph – it is the core of each expression. As she captures her photograph she becomes engulfed with the excitement of creating and expressing how the emotions of the moment impressed her.

Fragmented © Randee Ward

Most often she creates her expressions by merging hand art, with her photograph. Dissolving the photographic boundaries, she takes mixed media far from its traditional perception. Other times, her work is strictly photographic, manipulating one or more images, and developing her expression to a new level.

Randee Wards’s extraordinary exhibit of photo based expressions, “Fragmented,” can be viewed at Gallery at Marina Square throughout the month of November, from the 1st through the 29th.
