FRYE ATTENDANCE TRIPLES DURING MUNOZ EXHIBIT

We were told that the Frye Art Museum had triple the normal attendance during the Rie Munoz original watercolor exhibition November 5, 1999 through January 9, 2000! The Frye Museum bookstore also reported double the normal sales for that time of year. Crowds packed the museum even during weekdays, normally a slow time.

RIE MUNOZ TALKS ABOUT HER ART

An art teacher from Lambert, Montana is working on a report with her Jr. High School class about their favorite artist, Rie Munoz. After researching Rie through books, magazines and the web, they e-mailed Munoz and asked her if she was influenced by any artists, who and why. The following is Rie’s response that we thought you’d find interesting:

"An artist is influenced by everything he/she sees through-out life." RieEasel.jpg (20754 bytes)

But as for being influenced by other artists - Yes, many: Dufy for his lightheartedness and airy scenes. Chagall who made me realize that anything is possible and acceptable; fish, lovers goats flying happily through the sky, a face or person can be any color - red, green, blue, etc.

A person can have 6 fingers. From Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse I realized that 4 fingers is okay too. I'm influenced by the early sculptures of the Canadian Eskimos for their pure and simple lines. I'm influenced by Alaskan Eskimo Kiviktoruk for his story-telling skills in his paintings. I'm influenced by medieval church art and unicorn tapestries. Finally, I am also influenced by Rufino Tamayo, Ben Shahn, Diego Rivera, Auguste Rodin, Ludwig Bemelmans, Kathe Kollwitz, Picasso, Matisse and Rockwell Kent.

Cheers,

Rie Munoz
