About our guest curator:
Graham Hunt holds 2 bachelor degrees: one in Fine Arts and another in Biology. His artwork ranges from vibrant fabric dying to brutal macro photography. His specialty is hyper-technical wire sculpture. He's had a constant fascination with the natural world since childhood. This interest only grew with age and developed into a passion and a profession. This will be Graham's last showing before moving to Baltimore to work as a horticulturist at the National Aquarium. Graham interned at Meadowview in 2011 and has been volunteering every summer ever since and has been photographing events at AM since 2015. Graham’s work can be found at Wire Man Arts on Facebook and on Deviant Art.
