ARTISTIC TALK: An Ekphrastic Conversation with Writers & Artists

June 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Janée J. Baugher and Margaret Hasse are the winners of the 2020 and 2021 Dick Scuglik Memorial Residency and Scholarship respectively. The award is given to a writer with demonstrated skill and interest in ekphrastic writing — writing inspired by visual arts. Each writer was paired with a Door County visual artist: Janée with Ginnie Cappaert and Margaret with Margaret Lockwood. Writers and artists exchanged work and created new work in response. They will share their new work and discuss their process.

This program is presented free and will be presented simultaneously in person and virtually. In person seating will be limited and will adhere to current public health guidelines on gatherings.

Janée J. Baugher is the author of The Ekphrastic Writer: Creating Art-Influenced Poetry, Fiction and Nonfiction (McFarland, 2020), as well as two ekphrastic poetry collections, Coördinates of Yes (Ahadada Books, 2010) and The Body’s Physics (Tebot Bach, 2013). Her writing has been published in numerous literary journals. She regularly collaborates with choreographers, dancers, composers, and visual artists, and her work has been adapted for the stage and set to music at University of Cincinnati–Conservatory of Music, Contemporary Dance Theatre in Ohio, Interlochen Center for the Arts, Dance Now! Ensemble in Florida, The Salon at Justice Snow’s in Colorado, Otterbein University, and University of North Carolina-Pembroke. Baugher teaches Creative Writing in Seattle, is currently a submission reader for the literary journal Boulevard.

Though Ginnie Cappaert‘s art is based on landscape as a subject, she is primarily interested in color, texture and abstracted forms. It is the landscape imagery and its deep space that she explores in her work by building up thin layers of oil paints then scraping and dissolving areas to create a final peaceful, subtle mix of texture and natural colors. Ginnie’s dedication to her art continues to inspire other artists and also builds upon her collector base. When she isn’t painting (which is almost every day) you can find her hiking, biking, horse back riding and enjoying the outdoors. She is inspired by the beautiful landscape surrounding her as well as her travels to the South West and Europe.

Margaret Hasse was born and raised in South Dakota. After graduating from Stanford University in California, she moved to the Twin Cities of Minnesota where she began work as a teaching artist for a writing program in the state’s correctional facilities and for the state’s poets-in-the-schools program. Hasse has published six books of poetry, including two winners of the Midwest Prize for Poetry. She has received poetry grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Minnesota State Arts Board, Jerome Foundation, and The Loft-McKnight Fellowship program. Margaret works as an independent editor, poetry teacher, and instigator of new community poetry projects.

Margaret Lockwood grew up in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago then went to Miami (of Ohio) University. Graduating with a degree in social work she worked with families and children in need before getting married and moving to St. Louis to raise her family. Artistically she began as a weaver and received her Masters of Fine Art in painting from Fontbonne University. Painting became her medium of expression and led her to founding Woodwalk Gallery in Door County in 1994. All her paintings begin in a real time and place but then she works and reworks the images with many layers until the paintings can be any time and any place. She is a recipient of the Door County Master Artist award, the Milwaukee Women’s Professional Dimensions Sacagewea Award, the Wisconsin Arts Association Trienial show in Madison and other awards and exhibits throughout the Midwest.
