Elizabeth Arzani

Elizabeth Arzani (b. Charlotte, NC) is an interdisciplinary artist and educator living and working in Portland, Oregon. Arzaniā€™s practice combines drawing, painting, printmedia, and sculpture. As a collector of sorts, her work is rooted in storytelling, offering a form of communication that extends language. Stories are told in the cracks and creases, stains, and rust of physical objects, layered with her own mark making. Arzani has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally at The Center for Contemporary Art & Culture in Portland, OR; CoCA (Center for Contemporary Art), Seattle, WA; Levine Museum of the New South, Charlotte, NC; City Hall Rotunda Gallery, Rock Hill, SC; and during Luxembourg Art Week in the Salon 2019 du Cercle Artistique de Luxembourg. Arzani has been teaching for ten years and recently graduated with an MFA in Visual Studies from Pacific Northwest College of Art.
