Russell Dudley and his dog

Russell Dudley

Visiting Faculty


A Nevada Fellowship of the Arts recipient, Dudley and his art are deeply informed by mountains, desert, rock-climbing, and being alone both in the land and in a more existential way. His photography, installation, sculpture, and video work has been exhibited in galleries, public collections, and alternative spaces, including Mindy Oh in Chicago, the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, the A.M. Project and Treehouse Galleries in Los Angeles, and the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno. Exhibiting at times under the name of his alter ego Jimmy Jewel, he is a member of the art collaborative, d3ms, and his ongoing photographic collaborations with performance artist Joanna Frueh have resulted in portfolios published by UC Berkley, University of Nevada, and Nevada Museum of Art presses.
