True’s art accepted for Carnegie Visual Arts exhibit

Carnegie Visual Arts has accepted Angie True’s “Tragedy” for the Embracing Art XV exhibit. CONTRIBUTED

MADISON – Angie True incorporated her interpretation of two of history’s most iconic pieces of art to earn acceptance in an upcoming art exhibit.

True painted “Comedy and Tragedy,” the two masks that represent those genres of theatre that date back to the ancient Greeks. Her painting of “Tragedy” has been accepted for Carnegie Visual Arts’ upcoming show, “Embracing Art XV,” in Decatur at 207 Church St. NE 35601.

Embracing Art XV will be held from March 14 through April 22.

“I felt that people needed to see these paintings,” True said. “They evoke strong emotions and feelings.”

“These pieces came from a deep place within me … a different palette than my usual one is used and a freedom of expression and looseness, so different than my usual works, was created. Now my subsequent works are better for having felt and done these,” True said.

To create her designs, True used mixed media art pigments by Manny, along with acrylic paint, oil sticks and some India inks. “These pieces are also framed, ready to hang in, I think, a nice media room,” she said.

When True settles into a session in her home studio, she “loves to paint intuitively with no plan in mind. I let the painting tell me what it wants to be.”

Surprisingly, painting traditionally makes her tense. “I like looseness and freedom, no rules in my painting,” True said.

Previously, True’s art has been featured at various exhibits in Birmingham and other locales.

True has located her art business in Studio 2048 at Lowe Mill Arts and Entertainment, 2211 Seminole Drive in Huntsville. Her studio hours are Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from noon to 4:30 p.m. or by appointment by calling 256-431-4802.
