DEDE FALCONE

Dede Falcone is a working artist in the Seattle area for 20+ years.  Trained at Bluffton University, Bluffton Ohio, majoring in Fine Art- with a concentration in Studio Painting, she is now an MFA candidate at Cal State-Long Beach studying Painting and Drawing.

Having dozens of private commissions and sales with works in private collections both nationally and internationally, Dede has exhibited at Bellevue Art Museum and Tacoma Art Museum as well as CoCA -Seattle, The Goethe Institut Pop-Up, Seattle, and the underground gallery: Steven Gilbert Studio. Outside of an exhibition context, works can be acquired directly from the artist.

Dede is the Founder and former Executive Director of ArtForma- a nonprofit arts organization, whose mission is to promote visibility of mid-level artists in the context of a lack of general access of fine art to the public, and lack of artist access to gallery infrastructures. In the course of coming years, ArtForma operations may shift to a California venue as demonstrated by need and availability, but are paused in Washington State for the foreseeable future. www.artforma.org
