Julianne Hunter | Ghost Collective

Opening Reception February 11, 2022 5-8pm
Showing Feb 11th through March 24th
2nd Reception Friday, March 4th

The Ink shop is proud to present Ghost Collective by the 2021-2022 Kahn Family Fellow, Julianne Hunter. The work included in this exhibition draws directly from the basic longing to creating a sense of community and to foster relationships through collecting evidence of missed connections. The print shop is a collaborative space where one is a part of a select group of makers that pass down the knowledge of their skills. In the age of Covid-19, our ways of connecting with each other have been tested in unimaginable ways. Ghost Collective challenges contemporary limitations as opportunities for investigation, reflection and meditation. Common objects, familial relics, and discarded visual remnants are used to create forensic proof within the works, translated through screenprint, papermaking, cyanotype, and monotype.

Julianne Hunter (b.1986) is a New York based artist with roots in the Hudson Valley, Albany, Ithaca and Brooklyn.

She completed residencies at Penland School of Crafts and Zea May’s Printmaking.  Julianne earned her MFA in Printmaking from SUNY New Paltz in 2017 and BFA in Sculpture from the College of Saint Rose in 2008. She is currently working in Ithaca as the Art and Print Media Studio Manager and Visiting Critic in the Department of Art at Cornell University.
