It finally occurred to me that I never shared some images of my exhibition…so here is a glimpse from the opening night (only a few months late). The work was exhibited at the Musée D’ Ansembourg in Liège, Belgium for two months in spring.
Opening March 18th and exhibiting through May 14th, my upcoming solo show titled Entre Chien et Loup | The Hour Between Dog and Wolf will be showing at the Musée D’ Ansembourg in Liège, Belgium. This exhibition coincides with a printmaking festival Liège is hosting called Fête de la Gravure or Printfest 2017.
Entre Chien et Loup | The Hour Between Dog and Wolf will include work from many of my series; check out my newest series here.
I was fortunate to be able to attend this year’s Mid-American Print Council (MAPC) conference co-hosted by Indiana University Southeast and the University of Louiville. It was a grand time seeing all the demos, panels, exhibitions and other events that I could handle. I was also pleased to find out I had gotten Honorable Mention in the MAPC Juried Member’s Exhibition. It was such a pleasure to meet some new printmakers and catch up with old friends.
I also wanted to announce to anyone who may be in the Madison, WI area to check out the Lowell Center, where in Process is currently being exhibited. This exhibition features members of the Alternography group from the Photomidwest – Center for Photography in Madison, and their work using alternative and historic photographic processes. I have some cyanotypes, liquid emulsions and a couple of photopolymer intaglio prints in the show, so check it out!
I’m very excited to share that I am to start as Assistant Professor – Printmaking at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point this Fall. My deep passion for art, printmaking and learning gives me dedication and drive in my work as an artist and educator. It is a wonderful opportunity to continue to build upon the already established printmaking program, adapting and adding as the printmaking discipline continues to grow.
Mid 2015 I was commissioned to create two relief woodcuts, one of an Abbey in Ireland and the other of the Yosemite Valley in California. See my Commissions page to see my process of relief printing and how each woodcut was treated.
China Printmaking Museum – Guanlan – Shenzhen, China
Invited as a guest curator, Ingrid Ledent from Belgium selected four institutions with print programs from around the world to represent top quality in printmaking education. The show consisted of graduates from four institutions: Musashino Art University (Tokyo, Japan), Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp, Belgium), The Central Academy of Fine Arts (Beijing, China), and the University of Alberta (Edmonton, Canada).
The exhibition was held at the new China Print Museum in Guanlan, China between October 16 – November 16th 2015.
I was very excited and honored to be selected to show for the University of Alberta, but our participation was not to be. Due to censorship by the Chinese custom officials, the work from the University of Alberta was omitted from the show. This was extremely disappointing to not be included in this way and was a shame for the waste of time and resources spent.
So thrilled to share that I have been chosen as the Winner of the 10th International Biennial of Contemporary Prints in Liège, Belgium! As the winner, I will have a solo show in one of Liège’s museums. Honorable mentions are Vladimir Milanović (Serbia) and Lihie Talmor (Israel). Thank you to Wuon-Gean Ho for sending me these photos:
