Renée Azenaro's Artwork Selected for Irvine Exhibit

Associate Professor of Fine Arts Renée Azenaro was selected to showcase her work at the annual All Media exhibition. Azenaro’ s 2021 piece “Festering” is a mixed-media painting on board measuring 48 inches x 48 inches.

This contemporary and cultural art exhibition showcases local and regional artists. The exhibition received 1300 entrants with only 57 artists selected by guest juror Taylor Bythewood-Porter, an assistant curator at the California African American Museum (CAAM).

Azenaro states, “This artwork is part of an ongoing series in which I investigate and explore the conditions, divisions, physicality and healing of the world around us, manifested as a visceral and visual response.”

The exhibition, designed to expand community awareness, understanding and sensitivity to art, and provide leisurely viewing enjoyment will be on display at the Irvine Fine Arts Center through September 18. Works include painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, printmaking, ceramics, video, installation, and more.
