Angela Lopez is a visual artist whose watercolor paintings, animations and sculptures explore bodies in various magical states of generation and decay. In addition to her art practice Angela is the co-creator of Extended Practice, an artist-run initiative created to support the work and needs of artists who are mothers. She has exhibited her work nationally in solo and group exhibitions, including most recently at 6018 North in Chicago IL, Napoleon Gallery in Philadelphia PA and Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago IL. She has been the recipient of several honors including an IAP cultural grant, artist residency at Wedge projects in Chicago, and the Center Program Scholarship at Hyde Park Art Center. She holds a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute, and an MFA from Northwestern University. When she is not working in the arts, she is likely finishing up a cup of coffee and riding her bike to some nature spot with her son riding on the back.
