Renee Zangara Exhibits in Corvallis

Art alum Renee Zangara will exhibit an installation at The Arts Center in Corvallis through January 18, with an opening reception on
December 13, 2013.

Thoughts & Longings is the title of Renee Zangara's poetic installation of prayer flags made of tissue paper with a single white mono-printed petal. The chant, "loves me, loves me not" is associated with the pluck and toss of flower petals. A prayer flag is a symbol of loving energy that, when affected by a breeze, is believed to blow goodwill and compassion. Combining the two thoughts, Zangara created streamers of flags that refer to the delicate movement of flowers, the murmurings of prayers, and the longings associated with the augury of petal plucking.

Zangara states: "When an artist has faith, and believes in the work she creates, the work becomes an authentic and tangible manifestation of purposeful communication. I create work that acknowledges and upholds an age-old belief, positing the existence of a subtle and vital energy – an inexhaustible potential – inherent in all matter. The Tibetan prayer flags and my homage to them represent one facet of how we use our energy and how it affects the world in which we live."

Renée Zangara is from the San Francisco Bay Area and currently resides in Portland. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Marylhurst University. Her work has been exhibited nationally and is in private and public collections, including the Regional Arts & Cultural Council's Visual Chronicle.
