Coffee @ Ten hosts local artist Anne Morningstar, sharing her artistic process as well as inspiration behind her show “Natives vs. Invasives: A Great Lake Narrative” at Crooked Tree Arts Center.
“It will be a conversation of my process and use of paper,” shares Morningstar. “I plan on bringing some more examples of my work, including pieces that are unfinished and in progress. All artists have a process, and not all of their work looks perfect in every stage of production. This is a little insight into my own.”
Morningstar graduated from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2008, where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with a concentration in Animation. As a student of the arts, Morningstar found time-based media to be the ideal medium for her collage-style process. Throughout her studies, Morningstar also explored areas such as paper making and book arts, both of which added a certain quality to her storytelling abilities. In a short time, Morningstar’s work began being accepted into shows and film festivals where many of them garnered awards, including a $10,000 scholarship. She continued her studies at Indiana University – Bloomington, where she graduated with a Master of Science degree in Telecommunications, New Media. Her time at IU afforded Morningstar an opportunity to fully research the management and business end of the creative industry; Morningstar focused primarily on technological advancements in relation to art, arts management, as well as arts education.
This Coffee @ Ten presentation is free and open to the public; refreshments are served, including coffee generously provided by Roast and Toast.
