PARTICIPATING ARTIST BIOS

Michelle Murillo is an Oakland based artist. Michelle seeks to expand the vocabulary of print and the multiple in an interdisciplinary context. Her work is represented by Bullseye Projects and can be broadly understood as a practice of archiving: the lost, found, re-membered and collected. Murillo's teaching and professional practice is centered around global contemporary printmaking, dialogue, and cultural exchange.

Robynn Smith is a printmaker/painter and the founder of International Print Day in May and runs Blue Mouse Studios in Aptos, California. She received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from San Jose State University. Her work is included in many notable collections, and she travels extensively for residencies, exhibitions and teaching opportunities. Robynn runs the Art Studio program at Monterey Peninsula College in Monterey, California.

Carrie Ann Plank is an artist working in printmaking and mixed media. Plank’s work is included in collections including Fine Art Archives of the Library of Congress, Fine Art Museums of San Francisco, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, the Guanlan Print Art Museum in China, and the Iraq National Library in Baghdad. She is represented by DZINE Gallery, ArtHaus, and the SFMOMA Artist’s Gallery
