After leaving art school, Nayana LaFond went on to own and run a cafe and record label as well work as a curator for over 20 years in various galleries and museums, 8 of which as Chief Curator. Through her work as an art organizer, she is now honored to sit on the executive board for Artist Organized Art, as well as several other arts and cultural boards.  Her paintings and sculptures can be found in galleries, museums and private collections around the world.  

Nayana’s Art is primarily acrylic paint on canvas, sometimes integrating ink, cloth, thread and other materials into her work.   She paints paintings & sculpts using epoxy, metal, glass and concrete as well as found objects and her old medical supplies.

Life has been Nayana’s inspiration. Through challenges and surviving seemingly insurmountable odds, art has been her outlet and the place she could express that which could not be said. The majority of her work carries themes of social justice and as such she has been labelled as an “Artivist” (art-activist). Her work reflects themes from her experiences as a woman of mixed race and a domestic abuse and cancer survivor.



Awards will be presented at the opening reception. Winners will be spotlighted in our press releases, social media pages, website, and email marketing promotions.
