I recently had the opportunity to create new artwork for WFIU Radio for their spring membership campaign, which runs March 22-28. See the new perennial t-shirt and mug designs on WFIU’s thank-you gift page and considering donating to this great local radio station.
On Thursday, March 23 at 4:30pm, Christa Carleton and I will be giving an artist talk about our collaborative series Body Politic at the closing reception of the exhibition at the Joan Derryberry Gallery. More information here.
From February 27th to March 2nd, artist-in-residence Tonja Torgerson transformed the 806 Collective Space at the Charles Adams Studio Project into Dissolution, a dystopic Garden of Eden filled with images of flora, insects, and decomposing figures. Wheat-pasting screen-printed collages of both symbolic and local plants, the artist provided an intimate pause for the audience to contemplate the uncomfortable nature of mortality, impermanence, and the frailty of the body in a lush but bleak environment.
This project was created with the help of students from Texas Tech School of Art and the Lubbock community. The results of the project were on view to the public in Studio C at CASP during the March 3rd First Friday Art Trail. This project was presented by the printmaking area of the TTU School of Art with support from the John T. & Ryla F. Lott Endowment for Excellence in the Visual Arts, and in collaboration with the 806 Collective and the Charles Adams Studio Project.
Christa Carleton and I were recently interviewed about our Body Politic exhibition, you can find the article here.
My Mixed Grit print is featured in Issue 18 of Pressing Matters magazine, as part of an article about the project.

One of my collaborative prints, Rat Race, is part of an exhibition at the Janet Turner Print Museum. This print was made with Christa Carleton, and is part of a new body of work that we are premiering at the Mid American Print Council Conference this fall. We are keeping this work mostly under wraps until then, but you can see on of these prints on display now.
