Mary Frances Dondelinger, visual arts major in the class of 1992, has published “MODERN ICONS: The Sacrifice of Endangered Species of the American Southwest.” The book features images of Southwest species along with a description and the cause of its endangerment.
“I use the ancient art of egg tempera iconography on the most disposable of backdrops, the humble paper plate,” Dondelinger said. “The plate-as-canvas serves as a symbol of 21st century throwaway culture, just as the creatures have become expendable in our fast-moving culture.” In Ellensburg, WA, Dondelinger will be signing her books at Gallery One on September 26 and teaching a traditional iconography workshop for beginners October 5-7, 2012.
Dondelinger was featured in Winter 2012 issue of our alumni e-letter.
