Bit of Bite -Cider Gallery

BitofBite_PC2_preview-01

One of my prints (above, published with Directangle Press) is included in A Bit of Bite, a printmaking exhibition at the Cider Gallery. This exhibition explores ideas about food and the act of consuming it through a range of prints and works on paper. Whether these prints explore the harvesting and gathering of food, fine dining or fast food, or industrial aspects of food production, each of these artists brings their own perspectives to the table.

Decay – Fraction Print Studio

Seep, screenprint on newsprint, 2014

Reflections on vulnerability, death, and the impermanence of the body.  Large-scale photographs capture Torgerson’s screenprint figures succumbing to their decayed & damaged surroundings. These works provide an intimate pause in which to consider the frailty of the body; allowing us to dwell on uncomfortable truths.

Something Fleeting- University of Kansas

The Fall (detail), mixed media installation, 2016

I have recreated “The Fall” for an exhibition at the University of Kansas. The artists in this exhibition work directly or indirectly with the transient & fleeting. They explore this idea through material, process, or content. A moment, a body, a conversation, a landscape, a culture, a life … these things change, evolve, vanish, grow, get lost, or transform into something new.

Artists: Andrew Cho, Ann Dean, Neil Goss, Tressa Jones, Alicia Kelly, Amanda Maciuba, Cate Richards, Carly Slade, Kyla Strid, and Tonja Torgerson.

Something Fleeting

Women & Money Project

Flow (detail), screenprint on newsprint, 2013

The Women & Money Project

By investigating the relationship between women and money through a contemporary lens, Women and Money posits questions and initiates visual and verbal dialogue regarding economics, of which money is a by-product, a construct, and a human creation. Money has evolved from an “exchange of value” to a purpose of its own that has, in some instances, created its own scarcity. Women have experienced this scarcity and the exhibition provides an opportunity to bring artistic voices to the discussion. Women and Money expands beyond the limits of the gallery space into the community by connecting artists, community organizations, private entities, and audiences in exploring a local and global problem. The exhibition promotes the use of art for social change, examines women’s place in the precarious state of the world’s economic and financial situation, and scrutinizes, investigates and discusses infrastructures that perpetuate gender and economic inequality.

Artists: Hend Al Mansour, Lynnette Black, Carolina Borja, Rachel Breen, Barbara Bridges, Angela Davis, Liz Dodson, Kate Durbin, Lucy Rose Fischer, Camille Gage, Beth Grossman, Andrea Jenkins, Diane Katsiaficas, Tiffany Keri, Virginia Maksymowicz , Mz Direct (Jeanne Phillip/Judith Huacuja/Susan Byrnes/Tess Cortes), Laurel O’Gorman, Priscilla Otani, Shira Richter, Ellen Schillace, Karen Searle, Marcia Soderman, Meng Tang, Tonja Torgerson, Suzanne Vigil, Krista Kelley Walsh, Jill Waterhouse, Jennifer Weigel, and Karen Wilcox
