Flo lives and works in Oakland, California, with art connections in the Midwest. She was a resident at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha and completed a residency at University of Nebraska at Lincoln.
Wong’s “Omaha Pie Project”, honors persons from the Omaha/Council Metro Area. She integrates personal items with her talents to create a biography of the honored people. Also in the gallery will be Wong’s Rice Sack series and her Doll series. The Rice Sack series, Wong incorporates images and text to create a narrative for the viewer to absorb with wonderment. Hanging from the ceiling will be Wong’s Doll series.
It is an honor to show Flo’s work here at The RNG Gallery/Dixie Quicks. She, like Rene grew up in a family restaurant. Having her work in our new space is a home coming, back to this area and the environment of the restaurant.
There will be and Art Talk Saturday March 10 at Noon. Come and hear Flo speak on her thought processes and techniques. Her insights to life and art are wonderful to hear.
