Tia Simone-Gardner (MFA '09) in Group Exhibition at the Woodstock Center for Photography, Opening January 15th, 4pm

Tia Simone-Gardner (MFA '09) will be featured in a group exhibition at the Woodstock Center for Photography titled, "Made In Woodstock V". The exhibition features the work by CPW's artists-in-residence from 2007-2009. "Made In Woodstock V (MIW V)" is the fifth installment of the Center for Photography at Woodstock's series featuring work created by recent partipants of WOODSTOCK A-I-R, CPW's residency program for artists of color working in the photographic arts.

Established in 1999, WOODSTOCK A-I-R is a workspace residency program which provides participants with time, facilities, space, and the critical & technical support necessary to move forward. The program encourages the pursuit of creative risk-taking in the inspiring environment of Woodstock, where, working without distraction, photographic artists can focus intensely on their new work, continue works in progress, layout their goals for the future, and break new creative ground. Representing the broad range of photographic practices and interests that WOODSTOCK A-I-R helps realize, the 18 artists featured in MIW V engage in an inspired and deeply self-aware dialogue on history, politics, representational concerns, and more. As no two residencies are the same, the exhibition reveals the intensely diverse, dynamic interests of the artists as a group, and addresses each image-makers own particular story and voice. Artists featured include WILLIAM CORDOVA, LATOYA RUBY FRAZIER, TIA-SIMONE GARDNER, LAWRENCE GETUBIG, DANIEL HANDAL, WAYNE HODGE, JEANNETTE LOUIE, HEE JIN KANG, TARRAH KRAJNAK & WILKA ROIG, EMILY HANAKO MOMOHARA, RICARDO MORALES-HERNÁNDEZ, DAWIT L. PETROS, TIM PORTLOCK, JUSTINE REYES, KANAKO SASAKI, LUPITA MURILLO TINNEN, and DONNA J. WAN.
