About

Rita Valley is an artist living and maintaining a studio in Connecticut; close enough to New York to dive frequently off the deep end into the vagaries of the art world, but distant enough to enable a life of bucolic scenery, complete with a Dog and Pony Show. She grew up as a self professed "political firebrand" (despite politically indifferent parents who eked out working class livings) and early on explored issues of inequality, the waging of war and financial disparity. These motifs continue in her work to this day, with the near collapse of our economy providing further fodder for her studio investigations. She trusts- perhaps in vain- that her art practice will help to correct the wrongs so manifestly present in the world today, but she is not holding her breath. Rita Valley studied at Bard College, and graduated from Bennington College with a degree in Studio Art and a minor in Literature. She has shown extensively throughout New England and sporadically in New York City. She has received two State of Connecticut Individual Artist Grants and recently was commissioned for a collaboration between Yale University Art Gallery and Artspace (New Haven) to create an original artist's book, "Better Guns and Gardens". Funding was provided by the National Endowment for the Arts. Her work has been shown at ODETTA in Brooklyn and Real Art Ways in Hartford CT. Rita Valley had her first New York one person show at Capsule Gallery in February 2018.
