Exhibit of prints, hybrid media works to open with reception Feb. 3

“Willow and Ware,” prints and hybrid media works by Jessica Meuninck-Granger, will be on view Feb. 3 through March 3 in Caestecker Gallery, C.J. Rodman Center for the Arts at Ripon College.

An opening reception will be held Feb. 3 at 7 p.m. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

Meuninck-Ganger’s prints, artist’s books and large-scale hybrid media works have been exhibited in museums and both experimental and commercial galleries regionally, nationally and internationally. Her art is included in several private and public collections, including the Weisman Museum of Art, Saint Kate Arts Hotel Seed Collection, Northwestern Mutual, Target Corporation, and in contemporary publications, such as Andrea Ferber’s Sustenance: Contemporary Printmaking Now, Richard Noyce’s Printmaking Beyond the Edge and Nathaniel Stern’s Interactive Art and Embodiment: The Implicit Body as Performance.

She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in art education from Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana, and a master’s degree in studio arts from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She is currently the print and narrative forms area head and associate professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

“Making, learning and teaching are catalysts for connection that transcend language and facilitate deeper understandings of individuals, cultures and traditions,” Meuninck-Granger says. “While traveling abroad, I have gained knowledge of traditional and ancient printmaking, book arts and paper craft techniques through shadowing master artisans.

“In South Korea, I continue to study Hanji, hand-made mulberry paper, and its applications. This incredible paper and its variations is often described to last over 1,000 years. I am inspired by its strength and cultural significance in scholarly, artistic, utilitarian and conservation practices; therefore, use it to sketch, print, revisit, archive and pay tribute to the spirited life of mentors, masters and community leaders. I actively reimagine their workshops, tools and surroundings by reverently rendering, printing and reconstructing observations and memories, further transforming them into structural, architectural and often meandering visual arrangements that transcend place and time.”
