Flutter: New Works by Connie Arismendi

Flutter is a new body of work by Connie Arismendi based on the exploration of healing through a contemporary perspective. Like the beating of the heart during times of great emotion or the flutter of butterfly wings, Arismendi has created three large scale installations that depict the emotional fluctuation between hope and anguish. This vision is intended to evoke feelings in the viewer that are traditionally associated with the altar or other spiritual spaces.

Connie Arismendi is a nationally recognized sculptor and installation artist living and working in Austin, Texas. She received a BFA from the University of Texas and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her artwork is shaped by the profound emotional and intellectual concepts of family, memory, and spirituality. Recently honored by the Art in the Embassies program, her paintings are in the permanent collection for the Embassy of the United States, Belmopan, Belize. Her work is in major private and public collections in the United States and Mexico, and has been featured in numerous publications. Arismendi has been awarded public art commissions in Austin, Fort Worth, and Chicago. She recently completed three public artworks for the Roy Montelongo Scenic Overlook, Nash Hernandez Sr. Road, and Perez and Ramos Plaza along the Trail of Tejano Legends.

Flutter runs from September 12th through October 1st at the Mexican American Cultural Center (600 River Street Austin, TX 78701). For more information call 512-478-6222 or visit http://www.maccaustin.org.
