Nora Valdez is an Argentine artist working and exhibiting since 1977. From the beginning, Valdez has utilized sculpture and installations to create images that reflect on the nature of change, the life of the individual, and the natural or societal forces that buffet our souls. Most recently her focus has been on the nature of home, the immigrant experience and roots/rootlessness. Her thematic concerns are also reflected in her involvement with the community: art becomes not just a way to explore issues of human rights but to have a direct effect on them as well.
In 1982 she graduated from the College of Fine Arts (Mercedes San Luis, Argentina) with the title of Professor of Fine Arts. Her work has been exhibited in Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Spain, Italy, Germany, Greece, Belgium, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Canada and the United States, including numerous international Sculpture Symposiums.
Valdez is the recipient of many awards and she has appeared in numerous publications, including L’informatore del Marmista (2011 Verona, Italy), ”Carving out a Dream” (2008 Vermont), the Art History book “La Pintura y Escultura en SanLuis” (2007 Argentina), “International Sculpture Magazine” (2001 and 2006 for her work “The Journey” and “Stone Garden”), and “Who is Who in the World” since 2001. Her work has been funded nationally and internationally.
Nora has been a member of Boston Sculptors Gallery since 2012.
