Raised in Reston, Virginia, Maggie Middleton moved to Pendleton from Albuquerque, where she completed Tamarind Institute’s Professional Printer Training Program at the University of New Mexico. She earned her MFA in Printmaking at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, Poland, and her undergraduate degree is from Oberlin College in Ohio.
An accomplished artist in her own right, Middleton has also published a variety of collaborative lithography projects. Her love of printmaking and lithography, in particular, is evident in her solo projects, including prints made into textiles and installation-based artwork. Her work explores the depiction of women in art and iconography, and the “gendering of pattern” especially in relation to print media. Middleton is looking forward to continuing her personal art practice of long-distance collaboration with fellow artists during her time in Pendleton.
