Rebecca Potts Aguirre (b. 1982, Montana) is an artist based in Los Angeles. Her work is inspired by the intersection between ecological concern and the female experience, especially that of motherhood and trauma, often using unconventional materials that connect to childhood and “women’s work.” She is represented by Stay Home Gallery for 2021. She is also a member of Spilt Milk Gallery and is listed in the curated directories All She Makes and Visionary Art Collective.
Rebecca earned her MFA in Visual Arts from Washington University in St. Louis and her BA in Studio Art & Geography from Middlebury College. Her work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and in Europe and Australia at spaces including The Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, Zhou B. Art Center, New York Studio Gallery, Art Share L.A., and SoLA Contemporary. In 2010, her essay on art and climate change, “Creating a Fourth Culture,” was published in 20UNDER40: Re-Inventing the Arts and Arts Education for the 21st Century. Rebecca’s MFA Thesis in 2009 also addressed the role of art and artists in addressing climate change.
She founded and hosts Teaching Artist Podcast, coordinates the Art Educator’s Lounge, in collaboration with Victoria Fry, and runs Play + Inspire Gallery in partnership with Maria Coit. Rebecca is also a K-12 Curriculum Designer for The Art of Education University. She lives in Hawthorne, CA with her daughter and husband.
