Elizabeth Suriani is a Studio Artist and Gallery Manager at Artworks Center for Contemporary Arts in Loveland, Colorado and has been a part of the community since 2020. She graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a minor in Art History in 2016. While at the University of Wyoming she primarily studied 2D art style, including oil painting and printmaking. Suriani has also studied in Florence, Italy where she studied fresco restoration.
Before the pandemic, Suriani created and curated her first solo exhibition while living and working in Bangkok, Thailand, titled, Complacent. This installation was based on the over-production of plastic waste and the way it is affecting our planet. In the end she totaled over 1,000 plastic bags and waste for the knitted “blanket” that she created as the centerpiece.
Since mid 2020, Suriani has been working on a series called Say My Name, and is looking forward to exhibiting it at Artworks Center for Contemporary Art in the spring on 2023. Say My Name is a series based on marginalized groups and traumas they have experienced and wish to share.
