Angela Ellsworth is nothing short of an art celebrity here in Phoenix.
She's represented by Lisa Sette Gallery and is associate professor of Intermedia at Arizona State University, where The Museum of Walking (MoW), one of her current projects with Steve Yazzie, is based. Along with the launching of MoW last year, Ellsworth was named a recipient of the prestigious Art Matters Foundation Grant for Soundproofed, a solo performance that's part of her larger Plural Wife Project. And, to top it all off, an exhibition of Ellsworth's new work, "Volume I," recently opened at the Joseph Gross Gallery at University of Arizona in Tucson. Though these various projects and bodies of work are vast in the way they engage with history, movement, and space, there is a larger dialogue there -- a thread that runs throughout her artistic practice.
