Artist Talk: Marjorie Morgan on Making Ink with Natural Materials

Wednesday September 23

12:00pm-1:00pm

Join us on Zoom for the Art Department’s fall lecture series. Marjorie Morgan is an artist who grew up in Vermont and currently lives and works in Western Massachusetts. She received a BA in Dance from Oberlin College and went on to perform nationally and internationally with several Boston-based dance companies. She is currently a faculty member at Zea Mays Printmaking. A serious injury in 2011 greatly reduced Ms. Morgan’s ability to dance and perform. Since then, she has focused primarily on painting and printmaking. More recently, she has been completely captivated by the practice of making her own inks and pigments and using them in drawing, painting and printmaking. Learn more at marjoriemorgan.net.
