Carver Bank, August 15th, 2014 - January 15th, 2015
Angela Drakeford uses non-traditional materials to create highly process and detail oriented work that focuses on language used in personal and intimate relationships. She focuses on the lingering nature of language and what cannot be unheard, often blurring the line between what is public and private to engage the emotional baggage that viewers carry with them. Drakeford received her BFA in sculpture from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. A former fellow at the Union for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, she took part in the Market Place of Community Values group exhibition at the Sheldon Museum of Art in Lincoln, NE and was featured in the solo show I Can Grow Tall at Carver Bank in 2013. The artist currently works as an artist mentor and leads many art workshops for Omaha youth.
