Cynthia Greig is a visual artist working primarily in photography and video. She earned her MFA from the University of Michigan, as well as an MA in art history from the University of Iowa and BFA in printmaking from Washington University, St. Louis. Her work has been exhibited at the Art Gallery of Windsor, CCS Center Galleries, Detroit Artists Market, Houston Center for Photography, Konsthallen- Bohuslns Museum, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Museum of Fine Arts Houston and National Museum, Wrocaw, and Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, and is held in the public collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, MFA Houston, Museum of Contemporary Photography, George Eastman Museum and Smith College Museum of Art. Inspired by collecting 19th and early 20th century photographs and the representation of women, Greig invented the fictional character of a 19th-century cross-dressing female photographer as part of her installation, “New Eden: The Life and Work of Isabelle Raymond. In turn, she co-authored the book, Women in Pants: Manly Maidens, Cowgirls and Other Renegades (Harry N. Abrams) with fellow artist and collector, Cate Smith. Greig’s studio is based in Ferndale, Michigan.
Participation is open to all artists 18 years or older.
