About the Artist

Nancy Peterfreund (Seattle) received a 2003 GAP to purchase photographic paper, framing materials, and postcards and flyers for an upcoming show. Peterfreund has been documenting the residential and industrial habitats in Seattle’s Duwamish and South Park neighborhoods. “The project aims to reveal beauty in the commonplace, and the visual and personal impact of ongoing transitions in the area — subtle and dramatic movements of equipment, arrivals and departures of residents and transients, destruction and removal of structures, and efforts to clean up the natural environment.” The work will be shown by two local community groups, People for Puget Sound and the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition.
