Prographica occasionally invites an artist to guest curate a show . This year they have asked Ellen Garvens, Prographica artist and professor in the UW School of Art's photomedia program, to organize the June exhibition. Ellen has selected seven artists, none of whom have shown before at Prographica, to join her in the show. They are Zack Bent, Colleen Choquette-Raphael, Isaac Layman, Jim Phalen, Hanita Schwartz, Teresa Stanley, and Josef Vascovitz.
The artists in this show are also engaged in parallel play, making work that is about being a parent as well as returning to their own childhoods. Using childhood toys, participating in the activities of being a kid, looking at the frequent accidents or the domestic chaos of homes filled with children are the subjects of this work. There is pleasure and reflection in momentarily merging the roles of childhood and parenthood. For me the work acts as a reminder to appreciate the moment, which goes by quickly."
