Donvieve Udell Exhibits in California

Donvieve Udell, art therapy counseling faculty, is the featured artist at the Trinidad Art Gallery in Northern California through February 2014.

Excerpt from an article in The Times-Standard, January 24, 2014.

The Trinidad Art Gallery, a cooperative of fine artists and craftspeople, is honoring the newest member, Donvieve, as the featured artist for February.

Donvieve is a multidimensional artist-educator who creates masks that "gently challenge personal barriers and speak to people's inner places," in her words.

As a child growing up at the beaches of Maine and Long Island, Donvieve developed an intense relationship with nature. Later in her life she traveled to countries such as Bali, Mexico, Central America and Europe. There, she worked with native mask-makers and developed a great appreciation for the art of primitive and exotic cultures.

"My utmost concern is to be committed and conscious of how I impact the world by what I create. This experience builds an appreciation of our connection to all things and cultivates awareness of how we impact our planet," she said.

Donvieve shares her skills and ecological consciousness with students in a variety of venues.

"When students have their imaginations opened to them through visual and performing arts experiences, they are inspired to develop their own characters and to develop a sense of confidence and pride in everything they set out to accomplish," she said. "Students become more interested and sensitive to different cultural groups and to what each group considers beautiful and valuable as they observe the world around them."

Donvieve Udell is a faculty member in the Department of Art Therapy Counseling. She is a California Arts Council Artist in the Schools and education director for Ink People Center for the Arts. She will teach Multimedia Maskmaking at Marylhurst July 11 - 13, 2014.
