Entitled Destructive Beauty, this show features 27 prints highlighting current trends in contemporary American printmaking across a variety of traditional, alternative, and experimental print processes.

Catch my work featured in INK IT: Contemporary Print Practices in the Kay Gallery at BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown, MD. This exhibition features works by 52 regional artists "who choose both traditional and nontraditional printmaking processes to communicate images and words in multiple."
Techniques include engraving, lithography, woodcut, mixed media monotype, collograph, etching, aquatint, chine collé, screenprinting, letterpress, photogravure, cyanotype, solarplate processes, and archival inkjet printing.

New Urban Optics presents my work alongside fellow Philadelphian artist Anthony Torcasio through a project with Revolvd Art, which curates exhibitions of local artists within commercial and non-traditional spaces.
