38 years of publishing prints and over 500 editions
later, Rie Munoz has decided to slow her rigorous
release schedule. Rie is continuing to paint and has
done some fun ones recently. However at 85 she will
be getting old soon. In the spirit of enjoying painting
more as well as life in general, Rie will no longer
be coming out with 12 lithographs a year.
next release will feature two new lithographs by Rie.
Entitled Sunday Morning and Cayucos
Pier, these two fantastic prints will be released
on Ries 86th birthday, August 17.
are still super treats in store for 2007, including
a silkscreen to be released at the end of September
and an amazing book on November 1, entitled The
King Island Journal. There may also be a show
poster for an upcoming original exhibition in Anchorage
this Christmas. Rie Munoz will have other super
images to share in the future in the form of prints
or silk-screens but there is no release schedule at
this time. Look to 2008.
RECEIVES DISTINGUISHED ART AWARD
Summer, Juneau artist Rie Munoz spent a pile of
money to travel up to Unalaska and sketch the fishing
activities in Dutch Harbor. The next time she travels
she wont have to worry about the cost of a
ticket. Munoz was awarded the Rasmuson Foundation
most prestigious award, the Distinguished Artist
Award last week during a ceremony at the Baranof
Hotel in Juneau. For the honor she received a $25,000
check. I couldnt believe it, Munoz
said. When they called me up I was taking
a nap and I thought somebody was trying to sell
me something. When they said, you have won
an award, then I knew they were trying to
sell me something. The Distinguished Artist Award
is for a mature artist with a history of creative
excellence and accomplishments in the arts. The
award provides artists the resources to concentrate
and reflect on their work, to immerse themselves
in a creative endeavor, and to experiment, explore,
and develop their artistry more fully. Munoz is
required to spend the entire $25,000 in one year.
ANCHORAGE THIS CHRISTMAS
Munoz will be having a original watercolor exhibition
at the Anchorage Museum of Art this winter. The
show opens around the last week in November and
will run about month. Munoz watercolors will be
displayed on a 130 running exhibition wall.
Some of these paintings will be for sale. Stay tuned
for more details on this show.
