Drawings by Valerie Simonelli will on display in the McPherson Arts Alliance VAAM Gallery during July and August

Valerie Simonelli was born and raised in Rhode Island. Directly out of high school Valerie joined the United States Air Force. After completing her four-year commitment she separated from the service and began her college education in Virginia. She then transferred to Kansas State University where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Though she has been away from Rhode Island for over thirteen years, much of her work alludes to her relationship with the “Ocean State.” This series of drawings uses the application and removal of charcoal to allude both to the varied life found in the ocean and simply to water itself.valerie
