Russ is currently exhibiting six pieces at Heights Arts in Cleveland Heights, OH, in a show entitled Anatomica. This exhibition features six artists who employ biological imagery as a means of expression. The show continues through July 6.
The aforementioned "Spectacularly Efficient Dystopia" is part of the 23rd Parkside National Small Print Exhibition at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. This show runs from April 1–July 19, 2013.
Russ's two most recent etchings, "Spectacularly Efficient Dystopia" and "A Surgical Diversion From Times Gone Bad," were included in the 34th Bradley International Print and Drawing Exhibition at Bradley University. This extensive show—the second longest running juried printmaking exhibition in the USA—was housed in four Peoria, IL venues from March 9 – April 20, 2013.
"A Surgical Diversion From Times Gone Bad" was also part of Chowan University's National Juried Exhibition 2013, which ran from March 4–28, 2013.
NEW BOOK INCLUDES RUSS'S WORK
Two of Russ's paintings—"A Midsummer's Nightmare of a Dream Come True" and "Considering the Minister of Eyes"—were solicited for inclusion in an extensive international resource book, Modern Vintage Illustration, by Martin Dawber. Dawber is the author of several books on art, fashion and style, including Imagemakers, Pixel Surgeons, and the Big Book of Fashion Illustration. Modern Vintage Illustration examines cultural and art historical references in contemporary art and illustration and includes a Foreword by British critic and "design guru" Stephen Bayley.
