Guest Artist in Printmaking: Josh Winkler

In the dark of February we welcomed visiting artist Josh Winkler, Assistant Professor of Printmaking at Minnesota State University – Mankato. He received hisĀ MFA from the University of Minnesota in 2010, and has since spent his time creating works on paper, running a small gallery, building a stone cabin, and exhibiting work nationally and internationally.

In addition to a lecture about his work titledĀ “Reaching for the Sun,” Winkler met with students in Printmaking classes. His current artwork reflects his interest in how humans manipulate and label the land and how time, politics, and social change alter the context of both natural and inhabited locations.

Josh Winkler meets with students in Laura Bigger’s printmaking class.
