This November, audiences in California and Michigan can enjoy work from Stamps alum Robin Street-Morris (BFA ‘00). Street-Morris will showcase her remarkable work in the 2023/24 Artist Alliance Biennial at the Oceanside Museum of Art in California and the 2023 “Earth & Sky” exhibit at Matthaei Botanical Gardens in Michigan.
Street-Morris is a San Diego, California-based visual artist. She works primarily with a mixture of transparent watercolor and powdered soft pastel pigments, which she skillfully layers and blends to achieve an ethereal, atmospheric feel to landscapes. Her photographs are taken with professional equipment and processed in Photoshop.
Mixed-media paintings by Street-Morris will be on view at the exhibitions.
