She received her BFA from the Art institute in Chicago and her MFA from Colombia University, where she received both the Dong Kingman Fellowship and the Agnes Martin Fellowship. Treib's paintings sound a striking note with their resonant color palette. Her luminous and finely painted calligraphic strokes, whose figurative origins generate an abstract form, are both enigmatic and lucid. Her work has been shown extensively internationally in solo and group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, London, Vienna, Paris, Berlin, Lisbon and Prague catching the attention of prominent critics and art writers, Peter Schjeldahl, Lloyd Wise, Roberta Smith, Joe Fyfe, Stephen Westfall, and Sharon Butler among others. She has been awarded residencies at the MacDowell Colony, the American Academy in Rome, the Dora Maar House in France and a studio at The Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation in Brooklyn.

Grad Lab Workshop: Lighting
Lazarus Center, Grad Lab L540
This workshop will serve as an introduction to lighting concepts and practices, from basic lighting schemes to more scientific ideas like color temperature and the use of gels. We will also discuss how lighting effects every aspect of your shot, from depth of field to shutter speed, and how tools like light meters aren't as outdated as you might think. If you have shot grainy, flat-looking images in the past and are looking to avoid that in the future, this will help.
**If you would like to checkout Strobe or LED kits you must attend this workshop
