Michele J Garcia is an artist who works with photography in a digital environment. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, Garcia tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations. Her photos are presented with the intention not to provide a realistic view but to identify where light, color and the environment are important.
Garcia’s work has been shown at Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Charles Adams Studio Project, Kell House Museum, Wichita Falls Art Association Gallery and 9th Street Studios.
Michele J Garcia lives in Wichita Falls Texas.

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is designated by the United States
Congress as America’s Home for Negro Leagues history. Through multi-media
displays, films, hundreds of photographs, artwork, and artifacts, the museum
teaches and preserves the history of African Americans in baseball from the
1800s through 1960s. The professional “Negro Leagues” were a series of
baseball business structures established in the face of segregation from Major
League Baseball. These leagues produced some of the greatest baseball players
in history, serving as the highest level of professional baseball available to
African Americans and Hispanic players in the United States from 1920-1960.
Negro Leagues Beisbol was developed by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum
in 2014 to honor and explore the connections of African American baseball
history to Hispanic cultures, communities and countries. This is a deep, rich
history with origins in the late 1800s. The exhibition features profiles of
significant baseball players, a timeline of American and Hispanic baseball history,
and detailed baseball histories of several countries.
