This exhibit encompasses a selection of works to portray the artist’s evolution of her artistic development. The exhibit is divided into three distinct genres: Works with indigenous connotations that draw from Caballero-Fields’ Mexican-American background as well as her affinity and support of Native American Peoples, works about nature including floral and landscapes, and abstracts which have been a later addition to her collection as she is painting with Chinese ink and other media.
Additional works will be on display at the Las Vegas Mayor’s Gallery (Aug. 11-Nov. 1, 2023), Consulate of Mexico in Las Vegas (Nov. -May 10, 2024), and Winchester Dondero Cultural Center (Aug. 15-Sept. 30, 2023). Her artwork has also been exhibited at the Clark County Government Center.
Angela Caballero-Fields is a Las Vegas based artist whose work encompasses a variety of genres using acrylic paints and Chinese ink. With a doctoral degree in Education and a working career in community colleges and higher education administration, it was not until the Pandemic of 2020 that she started painting as a way of coping with the social isolation of the times.
She says “I found a passion in art expression that has persisted even after the need for social isolation ended. Since then, I have compiled a diverse artistic portfolio that includes abstract and representational paintings, including some that reflect my life experiences as a woman, as a woman of Mexican American descent, a Mestiza, a farm worker, and an educator.
I find myself now as an infant in search of my artistic voice; a voice that while in its formative stage, wants to be heard. “
