Dawn Roe (MFA, Illinois State University, BFA, Marylhurst University), divides her time between Asheville, North Carolina and Winter Park, Florida where she serves as Assistant Professor of Art at Rollins College. Her studio practice involves the singular and combined use of still photographs and digital video. Dawn’s work relies upon the mimetic nature of these media to activate and make visible perceptual inconsistencies between experienced and recorded time.
Dawn’s recently completed project, Goldfields, was exhibited last year as a triple-screen installation in Melbourne, VIC, Australia at Screen Space Gallery (2012) and later traveled to The White Box at The University of Oregon PDX, Portland, OR (2013). A multi-media exhibition of this work is scheduled for The Clara M. Eagle Gallery at Murray State University, Murray, KY (2013). Additional recent exhibition venues include include Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography, Detroit, MI, The Light Factory Contemporary Museum of Photography and Film, Charlotte, NC (2012) Violet Poe Projects, Bloomington, IL, Beam Contemporary, Melbourne, VIC, Australia, Launch Projects, Toronto, ON, Canada (2011), Orlando Museum of Art, Orlando, FL, The Museum of Fine Arts, Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL (2010), and Newspace Center for Photography, Portland, OR (2009).
Dawn has received funding for her work from various organizations including The Associated Colleges of the South/Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The United Arts of Central Florida, The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and The Society for Photographic Education. She was recently awarded a public art commission from the Broward County Division of Cultural Affairs, which will result in the production of a suite of artworks for the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
Dawn’s work has been featured in SHOTS, Fraction Magazine, F-STOP Magazine, fototazo, Mull It Over, The Latent Image, New Landscape Photography, Light Leaked, and Urbanautica, for which she is also is a contributing editor to METADATA (an educational component). She recently founded the public art project window (re/production | re/presentation) and serves as the curator.
