Victoria Star Varner

Victoria Star Varner is an artist whose work ranges from classically inspired, full scale figurative paintings to lyrical abstractions. Her works have been exhibited in museums, universities and galleries worldwide.

Her most recent work, a free-standing, open-ended chamber with megalographic painting, addresses the presumed "mysteries" of contemporary life. Her paintings, drawings, and prints have been exhibited at Santa Reparata, Italy, and eleven universities and museums in New Zealand and Australia.

Other exhibitions include: Mid-Four Exhibition, the Nelson Gallery–Atkins Museum, Kansas City, Missouri; 31st North Dakota Print and Drawing Annual, North Dakota Museum of Art, Grand Forks; Figurative Drawing: Three Approaches, Coe College, Iowa; 22nd Prints, Drawings and Photographs Exhibition, The Arkansas Art Center; The Human Figure: Five Views, Western Oregon University; National Invitational Book Arts Exhibition, McNeese State University; and Mark Making, Arlington Museum of Art.
