Briony Morrow-Cribbs' new exhibition Scientia Carnalis uses copper plate etchings and small, delicate, paper and copper sculptures to explore the intersections between human and animal. Morrow-Cribbs' menagerie inhabit "a psychological space usually identified as the domain of the human: emotional interactions and complex relationships...charged with the delicate nuances of passion, shame and excitement." The artist is originally from Whidbey Island, Washington. In 2008 she opened Twin Vixen Press with Helen O'Donnell in Battleboro, Vermont. This spring she received her MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Morrow-Cribbs has received several grants and awards and has illustrated with Algonquin Books two New York Times bestsellers: Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln's Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities andWicked Bugs: The Louse that Conquered Napoleon's Army & Other Diabolical Insects.
Contemplari Natura, Tallmadge Doyle's recent series of 21 copper plate etchings, depicts the flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest. The species were selected to reflect the diversity of habitat and act as a record of the natural history of the region. After printing, these 21 copper plates have been installed in Ford Alumni Center at the University of Oregon in Eugene. Doyle resides in Eugene and is an Adjunct Professor of Printmaking at the University. Her work is included in numerous public and private institutions including the Portland Art Museum, the City of Seattle Portable Works Collection, and the Cleveland Art Association Collection.
