Please join us at New East Arts Gallery as we showcase the work of visual artist Veronica Kumpf, whose vibrant paintings, which have been featured in Steam and Rockstar Magazines, range from portraits to meditations on interpersonal relationships and complex social issues.
Born in Buffalo, New York and raised in Dallas, Kumpf became artistically active in high school, creating complex lettering pieces as gifts for family members and drawing as a therapeutic exercise for herself. Citing a wide range of artistic influences, from Paul Cezanne to Judy Chicago, Kumpf’s paintings display a feeling of rhythm and movement, with themes that seek to challenge viewers and to engage them in dialogue about controversial societal issues, ranging from women’s issues to oppression.
Veronica Kumpf’s Work will be displayed from September 6th-19th at the New East Arts Gallery, dedicated to showcasing new and emerging local artists, with special emphasis on representing Austin’s diverse cultural communities and providing exhibition opportunities for artists of color.
