The Run Around Room
About The Run Around Room
A partnership like no other...
Liz Awesome is a bisexual space princess sent to earth to save the world. When her spaceship crashed, she created an art studio called “The Run Around Room,” which is definitely nothing so pedestrian as the second bedroom of her midtown Sacramento apartment. Deanna Norwood co-founded the studio as artist-in-residence and tall gen x lesbian. With their super powers combined, they explore queerdom, illness, and loss in their art.
Deanna is inspired by illuminated manuscripts and fine line drawings; Liz likes to explore texture and get angry at Richard Diebenkorn and Cy Twombly on Twitter dot com. After attending printmaking classes at Sac City college in 2018 and 2019, they spent the pandemic furthering their technique. They are currently creating relief prints using chine-collé on studio made paper.
