Graven Feather is delighted to present an exhibition of new work developed and produced on site during it's recently established Artist Residency program. Emerging artist's Madelaine Lyons Cooper, Sarah Sands Phillips, Rawaa Bakhsh and Julie Pasila each visited and worked independently at Graven Feather over a period of 4 weeks during the winter and spring of 2013, using equipment in studio and frequently incorporating the use or integration of printmaking techniques and ideas into existing and familiar media.

While each of the artists arrived at Graven Feather separate from each other, certain commonalities can be identified and together create a sense of interwoven elements and relatedness within material and conceptual themes. Layering and Installation of form are strongly present, as is a sense of play, modular shift, and fluidity of texture.
