On The Verge

University of Washington Iron Gallery presents 14 newly established Washington artists in On the Verge, an exhibition of painting, sculpture, photography, jewelry, basketry, fibers and more. This exhibition came out of the 2008 EDGE Program, a competitive juried professional development training that targets artists on the verge of a career breakthrough. Since participating in the EDGE program, these 14 artists have won competitions, received significant grants, been invited to exhibit work internationally, landed long term residencies abroad, been accepted into prestigious galleries and had their work written up in national publications.

Included in the exhibition are three prints from my vertical diptych series One Thin Line which contrasts images captured in Paris and Latin America.
