Dr. Kyra Belan is an artist, writer, and professor of art and art history. Over the course of her illustrious career, she has enjoyed more than 50 solo shows, participated in over 100 group exhibitions, and received numerous awards, including a Florida Arts Council fellowship and Broward County's Women's Hall of Fame Outstanding Achievement in the Arts. She is currently working on a non-fiction book titled Divine Ladies in America, while her metaphysical novel, Lucid Future, is available in selected bookstores.
Paintings, mixed media, and digital art from Dr. Belan's Divine Ladies series are currently on view at Goddess I AM Healing and Art Center, 600 Goodlette Road N in Naples. The series feature female divinities from world mythologies that span thousands of years, from prehistoric to current times. Belan hopes that the universal beauty evinced by these divine women can serve as an inspiration for women and girls, and help buttress their self-esteem.
Together with 40 other international artists, Belan is also currently exhibiting in II Premio Inernacional Don Quijote de la Mancha at Crisolart Galleries in Barcelona, Spain. Curated and organized by the Museum of the Americas in Doral, Florida, the exhibition is on view from March 26 through April 17, 2014.
Three acrylic paintings from Dr. Belan's American Beauty Series are currently featured at Arts for ACT Gallery in the downtown Fort Myers River District.
