CCU artist has one-person showTreelee MacAnn's artwork was recently featured in Points of Departure, a printmaking invitational at Columbia College. It was up Sept. 6 – Oct. 17.
She currently has a one-person show at the Burroughs & Chapin Museum Art Museum called Looking Out, Looking In. The dates on this show are Oct. 2 – Dec. 30. She will give docent tours of her show Wednesday, Nov. 3 and Sunday, Nov.14. Both talks start at 2 p.m.
A professor of art at CCU since 1990, MacAnn teaches what she loves to do herself -- printmaking, drawing and design. A native of Rochester, N.Y., MacAnn grew up exposed to art in an environment with a rich tradition in the graphic arts and photography, media she readily embraced at both State University of New York and Bowling Green State University where she earned her B.A. and MFA degrees, respectively.
Her work can be divided into two primary areas of interest: the human form and the landscape. Most recently she has been working with intaglio, a type of nontoxic process. Drawing from still-frames of old black and white movies and/or old photographs of the same period, MacAnn is revisiting and "rewriting" historical narratives, oftentimes in series. An award winning artist, her work has been featured in more than 70 juried international and national exhibitions.
