Stroll By Exhibit Series: Ann Kresge

June 1 – August 17
Annex | Bush Barn Art Center

Kresge’s work is concerned with a sense of place. She is fascinated by people’s connection to geography.  Rock formations, caves, canyons, earth’s rims and edges compel her. She thinks about ideas, forces and people gathering and dispersing. A contemporary printmaker and book artist she thinks in paper, pattern, series, sequence. layers and interiors. In The Stroll By Art Show, “Pop Up Books and Prints”, currently in  SAA’s Annex Gallery, her artists’ books, prints, paintings and text explore liminal spaces and the crossing of boundaries and borders.
