Angela Faris Belt
Angela Faris Belt is a visual artist who works with photographic media ranging from historic to digital processes. Creating artwork that centers on humankind’s relationship with the natural world, she combines specific media to underscore the concepts behind each body of work. Her series Vestiges, shown here, uses expired Polaroid Type 665 film to capture dying thousand-year-old Bristlecone Pines.
Angela’s work has been widely exhibited in prestigious juried and invitational exhibitions including Corden/Potts Gallery, San Francisco; BJ Spoke Gallery, NY; Arvada Center for the Arts, CO; The Dairy Center for the Arts, Boulder, CO; Foreman Gallery, NY; and University of Notre Dame’s Photography Gallery. Her work is held in collections including Kaiser Permanente, Reynolds & Reynolds, the Crowne Collection, Chicago; the Smithsonian Museum and the Archdiocese of Prague.
Angela lives in the mountains of Colorado’s Front Range, alongside neighbors of elk, deer, fox, coyotes, bears, and mountain lions. In addition to her artwork, she is Program Chair of the Studio Art & Art History Departments at Arapahoe Community College; in her off-time, she builds stone walls and participates in bark-beetle mitigation efforts. Angela is represented by Michael Warren Contemporary Gallery in Denver.
