Ronald Yrabedra Ron Yrabedra, a LeMoyne affiliate artist since 1977 moved to Tallahassee in 1972. Yrabedra was the director of the LeMoyne Art Foundation for four years, from 1983 to 1986. Curating 12 shows at LeMoyne, Yrabedra also curated 7 shows at Florida A & M University. He received his Ph.D. Florida State University. He then went to Florida A & M University to teach in the Department of Visual Arts and Humanities. He has had many exhibitions in Florida, several of which at LeMoyne. Most recently, Yrabedra's work has been presented by the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs in a solo exhibit: "The Palm at the End of the Mind" in 2001.
Yrabedra's most familiar works are his stylized portrayals in acrylic and gold leaf of cows, bulls, and palm trees and several have been on display at the 621 local gallery. He emphasizes that his works reflect his knowledge of art history and his concern with humanity's spiritual quest for balance.
" I've always been interested in how certain basic images seem to go through many, many cultures. From prehistoric cave-paintings through Classical Greek art, the bull represents energy and vitality and violence, while the cow represents the other side- serenity and stability."
Yrabedra's influences are Egyptian, primitive African, prehistoric American Indian, and ancient Greece, but his work reflects his own interpretation of the ancient art forms. Due to his intense interest in ancient cultures, one colleague at FAMU remarked, "Ron was born about 2000 BC on the Nile in Alabama."
