Enriching lives through art and craft

Arrowmont Craft Conversations: Emmy Lingscheit

“An overarching interest of my prints, drawings, and sculptural works is to explore intersections of social justice and environmental justice. My work critically investigates the interdependencies and exchanges between the biological and the man-made, using visual seduction, irony, and productive ambiguity to attune the viewer to our postnatural world.” – Emmy Lingscheit

Emmy is a printmaker and Arrowmont instructor. In this video, she describes her recent Arrowmont workshop, and the many reasons she appreciates returning to Arrowmont – for the camaraderie of old friends; absorbing new techniques; and observing the intersections of humans and wildlife.

Emmy Lingscheit is an artist and educator living in Urbana, Illinois and is an assistant professor at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where she is the printmaking coordinator. She holds a BFA from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota and an MFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She exhibits her work widely, including recent solo shows at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, the Lawrence Arts Center, and the Indianapolis Art Center.
