Candace Gaudiani is an artist in the San Francisco Area. Her passion for travel and making art began as a child. As she travelled with her family through all forty eight states, she photographed, drew story boards, and wrote journals. Over the past seven years of creating this body of work, she was drawn to retrace old routes and memories.
Gaudiani is a three-time finalist in Critical Mass and nominated for the inaugural Aperture West Book Prize for the top one hundred artists west of the Mississippi. A graduate of Harvard (cum laude), she studied art at the University of California, Berkeley and with the printmaker of the late Eugene Smith. Her work has been exhibited at George Eastman House, Electric Works, Lens Culture, Haines Gallery, San Jose Museum of Art, Center for Photographic Arts and The Figge Art Museum, and is in private collections including George Eastman House; the Fidelity Investments Corporate Art Collection; The Sack Photographic Trust; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; The Cleveland Museum of Art; Cavallo Point Photography Collection, San Francisco; Art Museum of the Americas, Organization of American States; and the Harry Ransom Center for the Humanities.
