The Visiting Artist Program and the School of Art and Design at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale will be hosting Aaron Cohick as our first visiting artist of the year. Cohicks Lecture will be held on Thursday, September 20th at 7 p.m. in the Guyon Auditorium located in Morris Library.
The NewLights Press is publishing-as-artistic practice, and is the imprint under which Aaron Cohick publishes his own work and that of other artists and writers. NewLights Press was founded in May of 2000 in Baltimore, Maryland. Aaron received his BFA in Painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2002, and his MFA in Printmaking from Arizona State University in 2007. NewLights has been located in Baltimore, MD, Tempe, AZ, Oakland, CA, and is currently based in Colorado Springs.
Aaron is also the Printer of The Press at Colorado College, a letterpress studio and classroom that seeks to create an interdisciplinary space in the liberal arts curriculum. Aaron’s work, under both imprints, is held in public and private collections all over the world, including the Library of Congress, the British Library, the National Library of Australia, Yale University, the Letterform Archive, the Newberry Library, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Tate Britain.
