A disability service provider is looking for a writer / editor interested in assisting a client to write their autobiography. The service is asking a writer to assist in transcribing, editing, typing and guiding their client through the process. If you are interested in this work and interested in pursuing your own writing as Writer in Residence at the Broken Hill Art Exchange, we are looking for expressions of interest. This could be for a few initial sessions to start the process over a week, or longer-term sessions over several weeks. At this stage we are looking for a writer who is available and interested in an opportunity to live and work in Broken Hill NSW, short or long term.

Summary

Fine Artist in Painting
Exhibitions from October 1995 – Present  23 years

Chitra Ramanathan is a contemporary USA based visual artist and art educator. Her distinguished, predominantly large-scale abstract conceptual mixed media and acrylic paintings are in corporate and private collections as acquisitions, and featured as site-specific public art installations including murals.  The artist's formal professional connection occurred in 2005, with an invitation from the Keeper to the Royal Academy of Arts, London for a visual presentation of her body of thematic paintings with an artist talk, tour completed along with conducting student tutorials at the RA Schools. 

Chitra Ramanathan received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1993, majoring in Painting with honors, and her M.B.A in 1997 with concentrations in Human Resources and Art Museum Administration from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Following her B.F.A degree, her paintings were recognized by art critics through exhibitions on Broadway, New York, with numerous originals acquired within the U.S and abroad and site-specific public art commissions based on her style and concept. 

Interviews with the artist by eclectic publications with biography and images have been featured in various magazine and book publications include Who’s Who in America, Askart.com, the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), International Contemporary Artists, Vol 1. available on Amazon.com, the Indianapolis Business Journal, Indianapolis Monthly Home, Luxury Real Estate Magazine among others.

Public Art Commissions |Site-specific, Permanent and Temporary Installations

Treated with fresh bright colors and intricately interwoven textural materials, each unique, colorful piece is executed intuitively with rapid brush strokes. In many cases, the expansive scale or multi-paneled works are suitable for large venues such as lobby areas of public spaces. (Small-sized custom-created work have also been commissioned). The established artist's process evolves continually with each developing piece being infused with new art materials, the luminous surfaces treated with primarily acrylic mediums or mixed media, often dense with collage and imagery, and cutting-edge techniques.

Site-specific commissions in the United States include a pair of large signed acrylic and mixed media paintings housed in the Bellagio Conservatory at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada since 2004 at the request of MGM Resorts International, wall mural created at Crooked Creek Elementary School, Indianapolis, Indiana in 2008, a pair of large paintings featured in the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois since 1996, five large paintings commissioned by the Arts Council of Indianapolis as a temporary installation in downtown Indianapolis in 2006. Private commissions include a three paneled painting or triptych for the CEO of Biaggis Restaurant, Bloomington, Illinois in 2016 and large painting created for a private client in Boston, Massachusetts in February 2018.
