Margaret Craig | Takt Talk
Wednesday, February 22, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
She received a degree in Biology Secondary Education, a BS in Art and an MA in Painting from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She received an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Texas at San Antonio. She invented Tar Gel Pressless Etching and has demonstrated that and other techniques at national conferences. She is often involved in trade portfolios and exhibits locally, nationally and internationally. Currently she is Professor and
Chair of Printmaking at the Southwest School of Art in San Antonio, TX . Her original Biology degree has been a major influence in the visual and ecological context of her work, and her shop promotes a less toxic approach to printmaking.
“ My art Informed by a biology background and printmaking methods, concerns contemplation of the ways we affect the plants and animals around us, and, sometimes how we may be affected by them. Most recently plastic is repurposed and evolves into creatures from the congregation of trash by the ocean gyres.
The excessive process I use in my work evokes a quality of human over manipulation. My intent is to create work that will engender thought about the relationship between humans and their surroundings.”
The event starts at 7pm with an artist talk by Margaret Craig followed by Yang Lim’s curator’s talk.
We are looking forward to meet you all!
