Julianne Hunter is a New York based artist with roots in the Hudson Valley, Albany, Ithaca and Brooklyn. Her work revolves around memory, time, growth and the conceptual framework of what makes “home.” Printmaking, papermaking and sculpture are utilized most frequently in her installation-based and modular prints. Hunter has shown nationally and internationally at Galerie de la Ferme du Mousseau in Elancourt, France, the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, Colorado State University, Saratoga Arts Center, and the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center, Del Mar College, Gladwyne Library, McKenna Theater at SUNY New Paltz, Limner Gallery, Market Place Gallery and Anne Street Gallery. 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.
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.
