GARDENfresh is an artist run project space in Chicago, IL. At Stray Show 2004 GARDENfresh will present the work of two artists from the UK; Ruth Pringle and Ben Woodeson.

Ruth Pringle Graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, Scotland in 1998. After a brief, grant
funded research trip to Greenland she settled in Stirling, Scotland where she worked for three years for the Changing Room Gallery by day and conspired with the experimental record label Diskono by night. Pringle was then lured across the Atlantic by a generous assistance ship at Southern Illinois University to gain an M.F.A. (graduating in August 2004) and ride a red bicycle.

Glasgow based artist Ben Woodeson was selected to participate in the prestigious New Contemporaries 2003 and he is currently Artist in Residence at The Sculpture Space in Utica. He recently had a show at Mercer Union in
Toronto, and in September he is exhibiting "The Science of Superheroes" with Andrea Jespersen at Overgaden - Institut for Samtidkunst in Copenhagen.
