Happening Now / Artist Activity

From August to October of 2020 I was scheduled to exhibit a solo exhibition of my urban landscape paintings at the Central Gallery located inside of the Burton Central Library of the Phoenix Public Library. This has been postponed until a later date after the Phoenix Public Libraries reopen to the public.
Also the AZ Fallen K9 public mural based project I was going to paint in alongside other ASU artists & alumni has been postponed indefinitely. (Previously scheduled for May-July 2020)
I am currently working on multiple cityscape/ cloudscape paintings of local Phoenix in preparation for the opportunity to put together into another solo exhibition when it is safe to do so.
I most recently showed my work at the Mood Room Gallery in Park Central, Downtown Phoenix as part of the Salon 48 Exhibition.

Armida Kielty is an oil painter with her Bachelor of Fine Art from Arizona State University. Even while early in her career, her paintings have been shown in many art galleries in Arizona. Some galleries Armida has shown her paintings include: Tempe’s Gallery 100 and Harry Wood Gallery and also Downtown Phoenix’s Mood Room Gallery.
Currently based in the middle of Phoenix, Arizona, this city's iconic sunrises and sunsets inspire the bright, vivid colors of her paintings. Armida specializes in cityscape/ cloudscape combinations of local urban locations with a focus on the common comfort of car travel.
With each new piece Armida creates, she studies and interprets the positive purpose of urban desert living.

Artist Statement:
"The sun and all that it touches is an enemy to life. Only the few moments when she is coming and leaving creates such a visual beauty. These daily gifts, sunrises and sunsets, are Arizona’s apology for the deathly heat that the sun brings each day.
Painting local views of Phoenix, Arizona’s urban city hub forces me to visually study and explain the purpose of desert living. Cityscape/ cloudscape painting is my therapeutic coping for choosing this inhabitable city as my home.
Even the most average of city views can be elevated to new heights just by the colorful glow of the sun peeking out from under the horizon. My work elevates the Arizona landscape to new heights in a loving, romantic way. As I progress through each painting, I am learning to love Arizona."
