Last Friday Poetry Group Presents: Dawn Diez Willis and Ann Kresge
August 31 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pmFree
Dawn Diez Willis holds an MFA from the University of Oregon. Her work has appeared in Iowa Review, Poet Lore, Southern Poetry Review, and elsewhere. Her work includes a collaborative visual art & poetry book with artist Ann Kresge, Sacred Spaces, and Still Life with Judas & Lightning, which was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award.
As a contemporary printmaker and book artist, Ann Kresge thinks in paper, pattern, series, sequence, layers, and interiors. Her work is concerned with a sense of place, stemming from the compelling geography of rock formations, caves, canyons, rims, and edges, and growing with a fascination of the connection between humans and geography, with their forces of gathering and dispersing. In Sacred Spaces, Kresge portrays sense of place through painting, drawing, and printmaking.
Kresge is an internationally exhibited artist, featured in universities, museums, and private collections including: The National Museum of Women In The Arts, The Victoria and Albert Museum, Yale University, New York Public Library, and the US Library of Congress. She has been an Artist-in-Residence at: VSC, Djerassi, MacDowell Colony, Artlife Latinoamericano, Atellier17, Women’s Studio Workshop, a Library Fellow at: The National Museum of Women in the Arts, and a Teaching Artist at: The Sitka Center. Kresge has an upcoming position as an Artist-In-Residence at The ACE Foundation, Buenos Aires and Playa. She holds a BA in Studio Art from Smith College, and an MFA in Printamking from Pratt Institute.
