Amira Rasayon, Artist: Gen-Y Exhibition for Young Artists
What Amira loves about VisArts? Opportunities for Young Artists to Exhibit Their Work in a Professional Gallery
When you meet Amira, she leaves you with an immediate impression of a talented, innovative and insightful young artist. Currently, Amira is working as a graphic designer and interning at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History in exhibits production. As a graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, Amira’s artwork has been featured in multiple venues in the metropolitan DC area.
Understanding that the art world is an ambitious field, Amira works in various media from photography and graphic design, to large charcoal drawings. As a former arts educator and multidisciplinary artist looking to expand her voice and make an impact in the art community, she was drawn to VisArts.
Thanks to VisArts, Amira was able to move one step further along her career path by exhibiting her work in VisArts’ Gen-Y Exhibition for Young Artists this past summer. In addition to showing one of her photography works, she found that having the chance to connect and share experiences with a unique community of artists within the same generation was invaluable.
A supportive group of peers can serve as a welcoming oasis in a competitive world. VisArts is proud to have made this opportunity possible.
Please support exhibition opportunities and building a community for young, emerging artists like Amira!
