Priscilla Dobler ’09

Every opportunity, from working for international artists in NYC to fully funded residencies in Mexico and USA, has resulted from studying art at Puget Sound. Art has taught me how to value my relationships with people, how to be determined, focused, and passionate; giving everything I have in order to complete a project while conceptually pushing the boundaries of dialogue in craft and fine art.

It is important to stay in touch with mentors over time and Puget Sound’s small community fosters sustained relationships with faculty and peers.

I am currently preparing for an Art Residency at Mass MoCA, and building a multi-media woven living room installation for an art opening in Tacoma and Seattle at the end of this year. With my hard work and constant persistence, I will be showing internationally with gallery representation in the next 5-10 years.
