National Small Works

Slow and Steady, a print of mine, has been selected for exhibition in the National Small Works show at Washington Printmakers Gallery in Washington DC. Slow and Steady is a print about Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, two men who, independently of one another, developed similar theories of natural selection to explain the diversity of species. I had just been reading a book about the history of the study of evolution and was struck by the friendship these two men developed when they might otherwise have considered one another rivals. I'm working this weekend on getting the print framed and ready for hanging. Monday, I'll try to get it shipped out to the gallery. The exhibition runs from July 28 to August 23, with a reception the evening of Friday, August 7, and a talk by the juror, Jane Haslem the following Sunday afternoon. If you happen to be in the DC area, you should check it out and let me know how it goes.
