The Print Center is pleased to present solo exhibitions of new work by Daniel W. Coburn (Lawrence, KS), Julie Anne Greenberg (Raleigh, NC), and Jacob Koestler (Cleveland, OH). These artists were selected from the 420 applicants to our 92nd ANNUAL International Competition.

The jurors for this competition were Keliy Anderson-Staley, Assistant Professor of Photography and Digital Media, University of Houston, Texas and Katherine Ware, Curator of Photography, New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe.

The Print Center's ANNUAL is one of the oldest and most prestigious competitions in the United States. It focuses on highlighting local, national and international artists who utilize photography and printmaking in intriguing ways, both in content and process.

About the artists

Daniel W. Coburn's exhibition will feature previously unshown works from the series Becoming a Specter. The black and white photographs draw on Coburn's ongoing interest in the imagery of family photo albums. These works seek to complicate our understanding of the idealized American Dream typically depicted in those collections.
Julie Anne Greenberg creates installations composed of hundreds of printed and cut paper components affixed directly to the wall. Based on weather maps of hurricanes and tropical storms, her work explores the ways that we quantify and personify these natural events.
Jacob Koestler combines multiple print and photographic media, sometimes in the same piece. His work invites the viewer to consider similarities between the ways we perceive the visible world and the ways in which photographs operate. Koestler's work illuminates both the possibilities and the shortcomings of the printed image.
