Artist Spotlight: Dawn Blum

SWIC Art Faculty Exhibition
January 19 – February 23, 2017

Each Monday and Wednesday during the SWIC Art Faculty Exhibition, we will feature one of the exhibiting art instructors, including their artist statement and images of their works.

I am first and foremost a straight photographer, though my appetite to learn has led me to experiment with other traditional mediums as of late. The transient nature of things, stuff, and life itself is center to my current work.
