Details: Hubby, who received her MFA from the school of Visual Arts in New York, creates project-based work in addition to collages, drawings, printmaking and photography. Her work often challenges the conventions of exhibition spaces.

Attie, who attended both UCLA and Boston University, created projects that were featured in several venues including the Outpost for Contemporary Art, The Santa Monica Museum of Art and the California Arts Foundation in Santa Barbara. Attie was also the subject of the short film, “The Experience of Art,” by Michael Comte and his work will be featured in the upcoming book “Gag Stigmata: Critical Writings and Art About Lady Gaga.”
