About the artist
Alice Dubiel has exhibited visual artwork
nationally and internationally for over 35 years. Most work is concerned
with ecology, land use and the politics of representation; other
works explore reproduction. Among 30 solo installations and community
projects, many at community and college galleries in Washington
State and California featured paintings, prints, interactive and
conceptual work involving land use.
In fall 2006, she was artist in residence
at North Cascades National Park. She has worked with the Seattle
Parks department, the Seattle Aquarium and the Medieval Womens
Choir of Seattle. The Landscape Tale and Implode the Dome
were conceptual works to stimulate community-based land use dialogue,
appearing at Bumbershoot, the Seattle Arts Festival, 911 media arts
and in ArtPapers, published in Atlanta. Dreaming the Earth Whole
at Bumbershoot and the Tacoma Art Museum was a collaborative installation
with artists Marita Dingus, Ann Rosenthal and Sarah Teofanov. Her
work appeared in over 50 group exhibitions and is represented in
the collections of the University of Washington and Swedish Medical
Centers, the National Museum of Women in the Arts as well as private
West Coast collections.
Dubiels bookworks and installations
have appeared at the University of Wisconsin, the Massachusetts
State House and in traveling exhibitions in California and Asia.
Other work has been shown in New York, San Antonio, Portland, Edinburgh.
In 2011, 2012 and 2014 Dubiel was honored
as a guest artist, invited to exhibit in Daegu, Gyeongju and Gwangju,
