Introducing Our New Fall Artist in Residence

 We are so excited to have Mo Costello using both the photography and printmaking studios. Mo says, "I have found that both traditional photographic and printmaking processes readily lend themselves to physical experimentation, improvisation and play. Moving between the two is similarly generative. Moreover, in immersion, disciplinary boundaries tend to collapse, which in turn creates space for new forms, new methodologies to arise."
