- Deborah Keller- Rihn
Deborah Keller-Rihn is an artist, teacher, and organizer who sees art as a spiritual practice and who values creativity as a powerful tool for personal healing and cultural transformation. Her interest in women’s issues and Eastern spirituality led her to create the 21 Aspects of Tara, based upon Tibet’s most popular goddess who represents compassion and virtuous and enlightened activity as well as many mandala inspired art works and performances. In 2012, she went to India to document the kolam tradition practiced by the women there. Kolams are a geometric art form similar to mandalas that has been practiced by the women of South India for millennia. Since her return she has created several shows inspired by her travels including Personal Journey at Northwest Vista College, The Many Faces of India at the San Antonio Health Science Center Library, Namaste at Highwire Arts in San Antonio and Works by Three at St. Mary’s University. The show at St. Mary’s features kolam photographs that are hand colored and enhanced with an encaustic technique. The Personal Journey show featured portraits in altar boxes and also works by other local artists about their own journeys whether internal or external. The show at Highwire Arts, called Namaste was an installation of 30 portraits in hand painted altar boxes within an environment made to resemble a Hindu Temple with kolams drawn on the floor as well as Indian music and dancing. These shows about India are just the latest in a long artistic career. The artist has a studio and gallery in the Blue Star Arts Complex called Keller~Rihn Studio where she has been for many years. She teaches Photography and Humanities at Northwest Vista College and has been working for over thirty years as an artist, teacher, organizer and fine arts facilitator and has helped shape the cultural landscape of San Antonio through her work as education curator at the San Antonio Museum of Art, program director at Bihl Haus Arts, arts program manager at Centro Cultural Aztlan and as an independent curator and organizer.
