CCP 3rd Biennial Footprint International

I've also been selected to participate in the "Center for Contemporary Printmaking’s 3rd Biennial Footprint International. The juror reviewed 329 prints submitted by 187 artists from 14 countries and 24 states. My prints, Dreaming of a Garden and Last Embrace were selected by Donald Sultan, one of America’s most prominent contemporary artists, who selected 88 prints to be included in the exhibition." It's been a good month for me! The Center for Contemporary Printmaking is in Norwalk, Connecticut. The exhibition is on view from June 10 - September 2, 2012. Click here for more info. 
Two years ago I submitted my first 'footprint' (Holding On) to the 2nd Biennial Footprint International and it was accepted. Since then I've made another nine 'footprints' of which I submitted two of my most recent prints. I really enjoy working with the square foot format and it gave me a starting point for this whole series. All ten pieces are currently on display at the Threshold Gallery at the Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis. See invitation posted on April 22. 

IPCNY New Prints 2012/Summer

One of my prints, Entre Itacurubí y San José, was selected for the New Prints 2012/Summer exhibition at the International Print Center New York. The juror was Shahzia Sikander. In the acceptance letter it says "IPCNY received over 2,500 submissions from artists and presses worldwide. Out of this varied collection of work, Shahzia Sikander chose seventy-eight works by seventy-two artists." I am honoured to have been chosen to be part of this exhibition. The show will be on view from May 24 - July 27, 2012. If you find yourself in New York this summer, you might want to check it out. Click here for more info about the exhibition.
