Diane Arrieta https://birdsarenice.wixsite.com/visualartist

Diane Arrieta (USA-Czech/German/Native American) was raised in Western Pennsylvania and currently resides in South Florida. She holds a BFA in ceramic sculpture (Florida Atlantic University, FL) and an MSc in Wildlife Health (University of Edinburgh’s School of Medicine and Veterinarian Medicine, U.K.).

Diane Arrieta employs an insouciant use of a stripped down schematic characteristic of 21st century cartoons and animation. This schematic, together with the application to her paintings’ surfaces of ambiguous symbolic phrases and shapes (e.g., repetitive circles or triangles) invite closer attention, serving to intensify the curiosity of the viewer regarding the density of meaning implied in the term syncretism. Her female figures in much of the work recall imagery depicting the Disney version of Snow White (and her physical attributes “as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as ebony wood.”) Snow White iconography is firmly imprinted on popular consciousness worldwide as the first Disney leading lady, surrounded by singing and dancing animals. Arrieta applies the same approach, giving the viewer a common starting place to interact with the work. Despite its avowed purpose [to inform and teach about global environmental issues], the overall effect is in no way directly didactic.

The works of Diane Arrieta have been exhibited in several museums, such as the Cornell Museum of American Art & Culture, The NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, The Boca Raton Museum and the Museum Of Fine Art Tallahassee. She has had several solo exhibitions, including the Art & Cultural Center Hollywood and Palm Beach State College. Her work is shown throughout the United States and the United Kingdom. Her work is in both private and public collections, including the Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz (Girl’s Club) Collection.

Additionally, Arrieta has been granted the coveted South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship Grant in 2008, and the 2010 Hector Ubertalli Award for the Visual Arts. She has served on several public art committees (to include Palm Beach County Art in Public Places and Art in State Buildings-State of Florida Cultural division), runs an exhibition program at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Libraries, is the Director of the International Humanities Curatorial Lab (IHP) Project at FAU and maintains a studio in Palm Beach, FL.



Linda Behar is an artist whose interest in shapes manifests itself through a variety of media. She seeks to bring forward the contradictions between the expectations of society and an individual’s sense of self. Her focus is on women and the stark standards that have been established for a woman’s appearance. After finding a study made by the U.S. government in 1940 to standardize the women body, she created a geometrical shape using the measurements generated by the study and presented in drawings and in three-dimensional figures. She carries this work forward in an exploration of figural gesture through miniature figures in the round and subtly three-dimensional 3D-printing images.
Her exploration of shape goes deeper through her work with the study of the body language. The pose is shapes, and shape is both a noun and a verb, to understand the human behavior is imperative to see it at a whole. The body language gave a visual form to identity and enhanced the visual aesthetics of communication. Through the pose, the body and the strictures of tradition, visual images itself shapes what one says and the way one thinks and preserves them as art. You are what you create, as much as you are what you perform. My goal is to create images that echo the past, confront the present, and embrace the future.





Kocabasi is a multidisciplinary visual artist who was born and raised in Turkey.
Her work focuses on contemporary social issues, including the suppression of female identity and the later awakening of feminine power and confidence. In her staged photographs, she comments on violence against women, across culture.
She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Turkish Traditional Arts (rug-kilim design, natural dyes, conservation and restoration of textiles, and illumination of manuscripts) from the Marmara University of Fine Arts in Istanbul, Turkey. She received her Master’s degree at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton Florida in painting in 2005.
Kocabasi is the recipient of the 2010 South Florida Cultural Consortium’s Visual and Media Artists Fellowship and the 2006 Hector Ubertalli Visual Arts Award.
Her work is in numerous private collections as well as The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum in Miami, Florida.
Kocabasi lives and works in Palm Beach County Florida and Istanbul Turkey.
