Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Instructor of Drawing


Ryna Frankel makes sculptures, paintings, and installations that usually involve the color pink. She likes to think that color is useful in creating tone in artwork, and pink has fun, girly, happy, cute, and oppressive references. Ryna is obsessed with cute things. They make her heart feel like exploding. Ryna completed a BA in Visual Studies at The University of Pennsylvania and a post-baccalaureate certificate in Painting at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She received her MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Washington in 2017.  Ryna has exhibited her work across the U.S. with solo exhibitions at Gallery 4Culture in Seattle and the McEachern Art Center in Macon, Georgia.
