Cross, who also works in printmaking, clay, found objects, and painting, developed his interest in art at Edmonds CC.
From Edmonds CC, he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from the Evergreen State College in 1995 and a Master of Fine Arts from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago in 2003. A reception for the exhibit, and a featured lecture by the artist, will be 5-7:30 p.m., Wed., May 19 in the art gallery, located in the library on the third floor of Lynnwood Hall.On the same day as the reception, the college will also hold an open house for its newly renovated studio space in Meadowdale Hall.
