Eliza Gregory grew up in San Francisco and moved to Phoenix in 2006. She is the recipient of a 2008 Arizona Commission on the Arts Project Grant to support her work making portraits of resettled refugees in Phoenix. Thanks to a public art commission from the City of Phoenix, last year she had a photograph on display at the bus stop installation at 7th Avenue and Glenrosa, and last spring she was honored by a Contemporary Forum Artist Grant Award. She joined the Eye Lounge Gallery and Artists' Cooperative in 2007, and has served as the Cooperative's co-president since 2008. Her next show of new work, Refugee Status at School, will open April 17th at the eye lounge and run through the second weekend May.
