Karin’s art has been selected by Seattle Art Museum Gallery’s director Jody Bento to be included in the Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) exhibit “Creativity Persists”. This juried member exhibition will be held at CoCA’s Pioneer Square Gallery at 114 Third Ave. S. in Seattle, WA from April 26 through May 26. This will be the first Seattle showing of Karin’s prints made with UV-cured inks (see story below).

In September, Karin will be a featured artist in an exhibit at Walker Fine Art in Denver.

 Printing with UV-cured Inks

Karin was invited to Irvine, California in order to explore state of the art printers at Roland DGA. In this workshop with several other artists, she was able to explore printing with white ink and varnish using the Roland FEF-300 printer. These experiments led to the creation of of a series of work called Inflorescence.Images left to right:
