Alice Thompson is a printmaker with a unique perspective. She applies layers of cut paper to windows to create the illusion of a room or landscape, changing context on both sides of the window pane. Through participation in the Kimmel Harding Nelson Residency she hopes to find inspiration in the Midwestern horizon. Originally from Upstate NY, Alice specialized in printmaking at Binghamton University, graduating in 2004 with a BFA. The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia awarded her an MFA in 2006. She participates in the lively artistic community of the Greater Philadelphia Area. Alice has shown her work in exhibitions at Fleisher Art Memorial, The Philadelphia Sketch Club, Moore College of Art & Design, the Main Line Art Center, and Little Berlin Gallery. She volunteers with BuildaBridge to bring art to children in homeless shelters. This summer she looks forward to assisting artist Andrew Rubin in the color intaglio workshop at Penland School of Crafts.
