I am honored to announce that my work is included a juried show with seven other artists at the Sioux City (Iowa) Art Center. I am the only photographer presented.
Aimed at introducing residents of the area to artists of the Upper Midwest, Sioux City Art Center Selects is an exhibition designed to present visitors with an understanding of how regional artists are thinking and creating at the moment. Curator Todd Behrens selected five portraits from Uprooted, all of women including two pictures of women of color.
In addition to Christina (shopkeeper) and granddaughter Kimberly shown above, Cousin Joan, Pastor Alma of Iglesia Vida Nueva, Eldoris (Lutheran church organist for 50 years) and Lynne and Jalynn (scholars in Sustainable Agriculture) are included. Presenting this vision of life in rural Iowa to a wider audience is a dream of mine and I am happy to be joining the other artists in public conversations on Friday and Saturday in Sioux City.
Opening reception is 5-7 pm on Friday 3/22, with artist talks and panel discussions happening on Saturday 3/23, beginning at 10:30 am.
