Elinor Carucci’s new book, Midlife, is reviewed in Elephant Magazine. Charlotte Jansen writes that Carucci "turns the gaze that she used in the previous decade—harsh and forgiving at the same time—onto herself. The lighting she chooses doesn’t flatter flaws, and gives her images an almost theatrical look, a chiaroscuro effect, throwing into stark relief the parts we might usually try to tone down or avoid looking at for too long or too close.“
Carucci also earned the Magazine/ Editorial award from PDN. On assignment for People magazine, Carucci covered a day in the life of a woman who is raising her daughter at a correction center, where she's serving time as an inmate.
Elinor Carucci teaches Photographing Intimacy, Love and Human Narratives.
Sarah Grass is exhibiting recent drawings in “Suffer Better,” a group exhibition at 184 Project Space. She and her drawings also traveled to Amsterdam to exhibit with Vriend van Bavink Gallery at Art on Paper Amsterdam.
Sarah Grass teaches Contemporary Drawing Studio: The Drawing Habit.
Will Varner and Panayiotis Terzis both participated in Comic Arts Brooklyn, the perfect venue for these pioneers of art and illustration in digital, printmaking, and book formats. And in Vancouver, Terzis is featured in “Exhibition of Unknown Power” at Dynamo Arts Association, a show accompanied by a book co-published by Terzis’ Mega Press and Neoglyphic Media.
