Ann Kresge


My work is concerned with a sense of place. I am fascinated by people’s connection to geography. The patterns and impressions of places I have worked, visited and traveled to inspire my art. These places include India, Japan, China, Egypt, Argentina and throughout the US.   Rock formations, caves, canyons, earth’s rims and edges compel me. I think about ideas, forces and people gathering and dispersing. As a contemporary printmaker and book artist I think in paper, pattern, series, sequence. layers and interiors. I explore a sense of place in my painting, drawing, and printmaking.

I have a BA in Studio Art from Smith College and MFA in Printmaking, Pratt Institute. I am an internationally exhibited artist. My work is in university, museum and private collections. These include: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Museum of Women in The Arts, The Victoria and Albert Museum, Yale University, The Milwaukee Art Museum, the New York Public Library and the US Library of Congress. I have been an Artist-In-Residence at Playa, Ucross, Djerassi, MacDowell Colony, Artlife Latinoamericano, Atellier 17, Women’s Studio Workshop, Proyetcto’ace and a Library Fellow at National Museum of Women in the Arts. I have taught at Sitka Center, SAA, Bend Art Center, SUNY New Paltz, WSW and Bard College.
