COLLEGE ART GALLERY AT LORD FAIRFAX, MIDDLETOWN CAMPUS, VA

Visual arts at Lord Fairfax are affiliated with the Corcoran, Washington D.C.


RANNA
® has consistently produced large scale work throughout lifetime as an artist. This selection of pieces provides an overview of pivotal developments in her work since establishing a second professional base in the greater Washington D.C. greater area - Shenandoah Valley - early in 1998, building on a successful career in Queensland, Australia. The artist trained in Japan and Australia where she earned two graduate qualifications, one in Aboriginal material culture researching the rainforest Aboriginal shields of North Queensland. For this she received one of only two research grants offered by the Australian Museum annually, and she produced one of only two dissertations devoted exclusively to the rainforest shields. Her PhD in creative arts was the first studio based PhD completed in Australia. It explored the art, music, and philosophies of India and East Asia, and compared elements of these to those of the West.

Ranna has exhibited in the U.S.A, Australia, Japan, and Germany. The Lord Fairfax exhibit was accompanied by selected instrumental compositions by the artist, composed for and performed on Asian instruments.
