Introducing Greenery
Every year, Pantone® releases a color of the year that it predicts will be at the forefront of trends in design, pop culture, fashion, and art. The color is an expression of mood and attitude, and this year’s selection, Greenery, is no different. Symbolizing new beginnings and vitality, spring is a perfect time to embrace this vibrant color and its meaning. The FIA Museum Shop has an array of merchandise to assist you in adding a little Greenery to your life.

Be sure to stop by the Museum Shop for the Women of a New Tribe exhibition catalogue.

Alyssa Minatel
Reflect (Work in Progress), 2017
Oil, digital print on canvas
24 x 18 inches

Alyssa Minatel’s exhibition provides a glimpse into her medical field aspirations. This collection offers a departure from her plein air work, as seen at “Wet Paint Day,” and other professional or commissioned pieces. As an award-winning local artist, she enjoys experimenting with multiple mediums while staying true to her detail-oriented roots.

After participating in local art programs, she chose Kendall College of Art & Design, from which she will graduate in 2017 with a BFA in Medical Illustration. Her primary goal is to become an editorial artist, capturing anatomical accuracy and providing educational images for various medical applications.

This show combines her medical illustration studies with her love of the human body, utilizing her passion for both digital and traditional art forms. The artwork is created via digital painting and then printed on canvas. Once printed, traditional art materials, such as oil paint, are used to enhance various parts of the artwork.

Minatel seeks to demonstrate the endless possibilities available through this mix of digital and traditional art forms. Her femme fatale-inspired show features several pieces exemplifying the female figure and the beauty of the anatomy held within.
