Guest Artists

Midwest Pressed

Timothy Dooley and Aaron Wilson of Midwest Pressed is a creative union that began as a matter of luck and proximity; their offices face one another in the print studio where there is an interesting play between walls, windows, and skylights that create an interesting interplay between the public and the private. What started off as casual conversation and feedback on personal work quickly blossomed into a decades long working partnership that is uninhibited by ego or rancor. Instead, a healthy curiosity (and skepticism) about popular culture, music, technology, fame, history and techniques has led to an astonishing variety and volume of work for two full-time professors.

Koichi Yamamoto

Koichi Yamamoto is a​n artist who merges traditional and contemporary techniques so as to develop unique and innovative approaches to the language of printmaking. His prints explore issues of the sublime, memory, and atmosphere. Koichi has worked at many scales, from small and ​meticulously engraved copper plates to large monotypes. He completed a BFA at the Pacific North​west College of Art in Portland, Oregon and then moved to Krakow, Poland, later he studied eng​​raving at the Bratislava​ Academy of Fine Arts in the Slovak Republic. Koichi also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, Poland and completed an MFA at the University of Alberta, Canada. In addition he has worked as a textile designer in Fredericia, Denmark.
