Nicole Waszak Exhibition in San Diego

Art alum Nicole Waszak's first major solo exhibition opened at Distinction Gallery in San Diego in June 2013.

The exhibition, Dreaming in the Hippodrome, is a collection of work about her young daughter, Nora. Waszak explains the show's title:

"When thinking of the world as she perceives it, I find a hippodrome to be a suiting metaphor. Hippodromes were the stadiums in ancient Greece and Rome where horse and chariot races occurred. An open-air arena with walls all around, much like the world of a child's imagination that soar to the sky but living within such enclosed and sheltered environments. New ideas racing by constantly as they grab the reigns and grow as fast as we can blink."

In her artist bio, she states:

"Seven years ago I graduated with a BA in Art from Marylhurst University, a small private college just outside of Portland, Oregon. My original major was mathematics but after taking my first art class I fell in love. I have always been a very analytical person and reconciling my natural hesitation toward sharing emotion with my desire to create something that reflects my private feelings has proven to be a bit of a challenge. As much as I have grown as an artist since first beginning painting ten years ago, the process of art-making has been a huge contributor to my growth as an individual."
