"Susannah, Liberia, Resettled in Phoenix in 2004"

by Eliza Gregory

Eliza Gregory grew up in San Francisco, but has also lived in southern California, New Jersey, and New York before moving to Phoenix in 2005. She is the recipient of a 2008 Arizona Commission on the Arts Project Grant to support her work in creating portraits of resettled refugees in Phoenix. Thanks to a public art commission from the City of Phoenix, she currently has a photograph on display at the bus stop installation at 7th Avenue and Glenrosa. She joined the eye lounge gallery and artists’ cooperative in 2007, and her next show there will take place in April 2009. Her work is also going to be showcased at the Arizona Historical Society in late October. You can find more of her work at her website, ElizaGregory.com.
