Edie Overturf, New Rosalux Gallery Member

We are happy to announce Edie Overturf as a new member of Rosalux Gallery.

Edie is an artist who works with prints, drawings and sculpture as a vehicle for storytelling. She has a M.F.A. from California State University and a B.F.A. from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. Edie just received a Jerome Emerging Artists Fellowship for 2016-2017 and exhibits her work locally and nationally. Along with her studio practice, she is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Printmaking at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

“Through the narratives I create I question this act of storytelling and its effective outcomes on individual as well as cultural perspectives. Folktales, legends, religions, myths, fable, rumors: all  have been used to explain the unexplainable, as well as create social structures through tales of morality. The authorship and authority that the storyteller retains allows for embellishment and plausibility, and the direction in which this authority is used is dependent on the author’s agenda.
