Brian and I are honored to have a few of our pieces accepted into this year's Rarefied Light exhibition, a traveling photography show that tours the state's museums in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, and Kodiak. (Brian's photo above, "Coney Island Sundays," even received an honorable mention!)
We are especially honored because this year's Rarefied Light juror was none other than Cig Harvey, an artist whose work we have both admired for years. (You can read our review on her latest book, You Look At Me Like An Emergency, here.) Cig is inspiring, both as an artist and as a person. She is brilliant, she is captivating, she is down-to-earth, she is dreamy, and she is a teacher through-and-through. We are so privileged to have had the opportunity to listen to her talk about her work and to meet her. Even though her schedule was busy and her visit short, she made time to stop by our home to sit on the floor, drink tea, and talk about life, parenthood, and art we admire. (We talked about you, too, AVS!)
Congrats to all of the other artists, and thanks for venturing North, Cig! We'll see you sometime on the other coast!
