One of the great pleasures in life is meeting an artist as a young person, and watching as they develop their craft over the years. I first met Briony Morrow-Cribbs as a graduating high school senior, when I had the privilege of seeing her work at a scholarship competition and recommending her for an award. (Which she received) Since that time, more than 10 years ago, I’ve watched her dedication to her art work as it matures.
She has recently completed a Master of Fine Arts degree at University of Wisconsin, Madison, one of the premier printmaking programs in the country. She also created illustrations for two books by writer Amy Stewart, Wicked Bugs and Wicked Plants.
She is currently having a show at the Davidson Gallery in Seattle, WA, which just received a glowing review in the Seattle Times. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/thearts/
Are we pleased to be showing her work at the Froggwell Biennale? You bet. Hope you can come see it there.
A big thanks to Sue Frause, for alerting me to this review of Briony’s work.
