Artist: Romy Aura Maloon

Romy Aura Maloon (1986) graduated from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL, with a BFA in Fine Arts Sculpture. She has studied art and its history at the New York Studio program and Internationally in China and Tibet with the Pratt Institute and Global Learning Labs. She currently works as a high-end event coordinator for a catering company and has seen this position begin to play a pivotal role in her aesthetic. Her work is influenced by her family’s South African heritage and the schism created by being first generation American. Her works have been exhibited in galleries throughout Georgia, New York, and Florida, including the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (GA), Young Blood Gallery (GA), Beep Beep Gallery (GA), Selby Gallery (FL), and the New York Studio Program (NY).   Maloon was named one of five finalists for the Forward Arts foundation in 2011. She was in the Tomorrow Stars, Verge Art Miami Beach exhibition, in conjunction with Art Basel Miami in both 2011 and 2012. Romy is a member of numerous art advocacy organizations, including being both a represented artist by Dashboard Co-op and their Public Outreach and Project Expansion Coordinator.
