Elizabeth Claire Rose's artwork records interactions between people and the environment, experiences in natural environments, depictions of ever-changing landscapes, migratory movements, and the human relationship to wilderness and place. Rose employs both traditional and non-traditional methods of printmaking and photographic processes to create works on paper, illustrations, installations, and public art.
Rose's work was selected for publication by Sylvia Plachy in 25 Under 25: Up and Coming American Photographers Vol. 2, published by powerHouse Books and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. She is a recipient of artist residencies with the Alberta Printmakers' Society in Alberta, Canada, and will again be an artist resident at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina this January 2015. Rose has received many awards for drawing, painting, printmaking, and photography including Scholastic National Art Silver Award for photography portfolio and the National American Vision Award (2). Her work is in many collections and has been exhibited across the United States, Canada, Czech Republic and Bulgaria.
Elizabeth received her BA (cum laude) in Fine Art focusing on Printmaking and Photography with a minor in Wilderness Studies from the University of Montana. She has received several fellowships for the study of Slavic language at the University of Pittsburgh, PA. Rose has also taken several courses and workshops in photojournalism from the University of Montana, as well as professional development workshops from the New York Foundation for the Arts, and will soon attend Frogman's Print workshop in South Dakota.
