Contemporary Townsville Artist, Ranna®, goes International

WAM Web Design: May 2011 - former Townsville artist, Ranna®, has been invited to exhibit her art work at the Florence Biennale Art Exhibition, selected due to cross-cultural and scientific pulses in her art. Previously part of the Townsville visual arts scene for over 25 years, contemporary artist, Ranna® has already proved that artists from Townsville can succeed in the international contemporary art world with art exhibitions in the USA, Europe, Japan, as well as Queensland-wide and in Townsville.

After establishing a second art studio in the USA in 1998, Ranna® also maintained her Townsville art studio for many years, from which she shipped art work south and overseas. She now maintains a contemporary art studio in the USA and another art studio in the Blue Mountains, Australia, near her son and his family.
