Growth of the Soul- Art showcase by Kasmira Demyan
May 2 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Rhinebeck Bank is pleased to announce their next local artist is now on display in its Rhinebeck branch: painter Kasmira Demyan.
Growing up, Demyan was a creative child, as her mother always stressed the importance of art and to follow any passion she had. She studied visual arts at SUNY Ulster and then transferred to the University at Albany to pursue her interest in Psychology. In December 2018, Demyan graduated with her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and is currently pursuing her career as an artist while researching graduate school for art therapy. Her work has been displayed in numerous art shows and juried exhibits across the Hudson Valley, including the Saratoga Arts “120* Intercollegiate Regional” and the Peace Nation Café’s “Abstractions & Illustrations” exhibition in Kingston, N.Y, to name a few.
Demyan’s s work lies within the realm of traditional art styles and contemporary abstraction. She lets her creative energy flow onto a canvas, creating a confessional of her thoughts and emotions. As an artist and aspiring art therapist, Demyan wants to help inspire the creative process for individuals who endure physical, mental, and/or emotional wounds to create metaphors and visual symbols to awaken their subconscious mind to allow an unspoken dialogue to be revealed. She resonates to art as “An engagement for a moment of relief and connection. A paradox between nature and a visual study. The assemblages in my process of work reveal a deeper connection to our surroundings and a disconnect from ourselves.”
Demyan’s exhibit, “Growth of the Soul” will be on display until May 30th. To view more work or for inquiries, please contact Kasmirademyan.portfoliobox.me.
