Julia Edith Rigby is a visual artist from California. Her work explores themes of gender, sisterhood, and wildness in dialogue with the environment. Often working in collaboration with the landscape and natural elements, she situates traditional print media in untraditional contexts. Her photographs capture these prints in states of metamorphosis. She works in large-scale woodblock and monotype printmaking, photography and installation media. Her work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and internationally. She has been published by Grist Magazine, the Inverness Almanac, the West Marin Review, and Graphic Impressions. She recently completed an artist residency at the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California and at Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts in Saratoga, Wyoming. This July, she will be an artist in residence at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica di Venezia, a printmaking center in Venice, Italy. She will begin her MFA at UC Davis this fall. Julia is an active member of the Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art, the National Women’s Caucus for Art, the Women’s Eco-Art Caucus, California Society of Printmakers and Southern Graphics Council International.
