El Centro, CA, March 03, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Artist Michelle Rouch of Vail, AZ has been honored with the unveiling ceremony of her “Angels in Flight” artwork at the Naval Air Base El Centro. The ceremony will occur on Friday, 15 March, 2013 at the NAFEC Mirage Club in the evening. The artist decided on abstraction to depict the Blue Angel diamond formation crossing a waving American Flag. The canvas is caked with oil paint and oozes with texture, applied with just a palette knife. The piece was created in 2011, inspired by the Naval Aviation Centennial celebration.
Prior to “Angels in Flight's” permanent home it was exhibited at: San Francisco Fleet Week at Major General J. Michael Myatt USMC (Ret.) VIP Reception at Marine's Memorial Hotel; The W Foundation’s Navy-in-Space Exhibit at the Marina Green; and at San Diego Air & Space Museum Hall of Fame Induction Award Ceremony.
Michelle Rouch is a self-taught artist, who combines technical knowledge and accuracy with ability to define abstraction between finite lines. Michelle Rouch's engineering background offers the foundation for her artistic ability to draw aviation and astronomical subjects. She’s a member of American Society of Aviation Artist, International Association of Astronomical Artists, and American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
Nestled in the heart of Southern California’s Imperial Valley rests the Naval Air Facility El Centro. The winter’s optimum temperatures are ideal for flying, especially for the Naval aviation trainers. The NAF El Centro honors the public with an up-close and personal Airshow with aerobatic racing, apache demonstrations, Legacy Flight Team, and aerobatic air show pilots Julie Clark, Bill Cornick Melissa Pemberton, and Kent Pietsch, with a grand finale of Blue Angels roaring across the skies. The gates will open on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 8 am and close at 4pm.
