UPPERCASE arrives

This came in the mail today, I am so excited that I had to share!

UPPERCASE is a lovely magazine about art, artists, design and other creative practices. And I am thrilled to be included in this amazing publication, and share a little of my Fogo Island adventure.

Below is a low res preview of the whole magazine, but you’ll have to buy your own copy if you want to read the whole thing. It’s worth it!

Article on Permanent

Permanent, the art and design group located in Minneapolis, recently featured an article about my artist selections for the most recent exhibition at XYandZ Gallery. They were kind enough to say a few flattering things about me:

“Tonja, who originally showed her work at XYandZ in January 2010, has had quite a few of her own successes. She recently beat tough competition, proving her printmaking finesse in two major juried print exhibits. Her work is included in the Atlanta Print Biennial International, at Barbara Archer Gallery in Atlanta, chosen out of over 750 applicants from the U.S., Canada, Europe and Japan. Her work was also chosen out of over 300 applicants to be shown in Print U.S.A. 2011 at the Springfield Art Museum.”

You can find the whole article here.

I selected Jennifer Davis and Ellen Mueller for the TWO exhibition. TWO is an exhibition about the connections between artists, for TWO past artists who exhibited at XYandZ Gallery were able to select two artists that they would like to have showcased at XYandZ.  TWO opens with a sale on Friday Novemeber 25th.
