Shark's Ink. at BMoCA with Barbara Takenaga

  • Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art 1750 13th Street Boulder, CO, 80302 United States (map)

BMoCA is pleased to present another chapter in our series of talks in collaboration with Shark’s Ink., the nationally-renowned print studio in Lyons, Colorado. Shark’s Ink. at BMoCA are casual conversations between Master printer Bud Shark, his wife and fellow artist Barbara Shark, and one of Shark’s Ink. resident artists.

The conversation on August 16 will feature painter Barbara Takenaga.

Barbara Takenaga (b. 1949, Nebraska, lives in New York) is a painter who made her first lithograph at Shark’s Ink. in the summer of 2002. Her abstract works are full of repeated, obsessive mark making that energize the surface and imply a depth of space. Her work processes are exercises in measuring time, a kind of meditative practice, that to an observer seem madly playful and persuasive.

Barbara Takenaga is a professor at Williams College in Massachusetts. She has received many awards and grants including a Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation studio grant, the Massachusetts Artist Fellowship, an Artist’s Resource Trust Grant from the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation , and a printmaking residency at the Vermont Studio School. Takenaga’s work is in the collections of the University of Colorado and The News Corporation.
