Juror: Cerese Vaden

Raised on a ranch in rural central Idaho, Cerese Vaden established early her interest in constructions and natural forms. Juxtaposing three-dimensional objects with what have traditionally been two-dimensional works; paintings, prints, and drawings, Vaden’s artwork merges and presents these elements within three-dimensional formats and structures.

A professor of art at the University of Arizona since 2000, Vaden teaches printmaking, watercolor, mixed media, drawing, and book arts courses. Her prints and mixed media works have been shown throughout the United States as well as many locations abroad.
