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 Women’s 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.

Dubiel’s 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, in Cultural Sensibilities, a collaboration with women artists from Korea, Russia and US, Lights of Women, and Garden of Flame with artists throughout Eurasia and the US.

Alice Dubiel works and lives with her family in Seattle where she volunteers as an amateur naturalist and sings with the Medieval Women’s Choir under the direction of Margriet Tindemans. Born in Berkeley, CA, she received an MA in painting from San Jose State University and an AB in English literature from UC Santa Cruz, pursuing graduate literature studies in medieval literature, art and critical theory at Bryn Mawr College and UC Irvine. In 1984, Dubiel received funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities for research on women’s performance. In 2007 she received funds from 4Culture in King County, WA for The Hazel Tree Mother and in 2014 for travel to Korea. She has taught courses in studio art and expository writing, English literature and art history, focusing on ancient, medieval and contemporary art. Her work appears in Women Artists of the American West by Susan Ressler.
