Hunter Buck

2018-2019

Hunter Buck received an MFA in Visual Studies from Pacific Northwest College of Art (Portland, Oregon) in 2017 and a BFA in Printmaking from California College of the Arts (Oakland, California) in 2012. He is a mixed media artist working with printmaking, painting, drawing, photograph, and sculpture. Recent works focus on geology, environmental interaction, awareness, and site specificity.

During his fellowship he plans to focus on a series of intaglio prints inspired by the unique geological features of the area around Ithaca. This work will explore negative space and line while creating moments of intimacy with natural forms.

The Kahn Family Fellowship, in memory of our colleague Peter Kahn, is designed to offer opportunities to artists seeking further experience and professional development in printmaking and book arts, and is available to artists with postgraduate degrees in printmaking or book arts locally, nationally or internationally. The Fellow is given the privileges of a Printmaker Associate, including unlimited access to the studio to produce their own work, a stipend, the possibility of teaching workshops, and editioning for others on a fee basis, and will have a solo show here at The Ink Shop for the month of June.
