Mason Fraker, curator of the Intersections show, was thrilled to be able to entice Bulmash to residency during the show, which gives expression to the intersectionality of artwork by less-represented groups. Intersections runs through July 16

Bulmash is an award-winning studio artist, a recipient of a Black Lives Matter Arts Grant, and a teacher (Kirkland Arts Center, Pratt). The Graphite gallery, located at 202 Main St. in downtown Edmonds, is free and open to the public. Bulmash will be there on Saturday, July 16 from noon to 4 p.m.

All of Bulmash’s art can be viewed and purchased on her website.
