BOOK PUBLICATION

MARGARET COGSWELL: RIVER FUGUES

In 2017-18, a generous grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation supported several projects, including the publication of RIVER FUGUES, a book on the last 17 years of River Fugues projects exhibited throughout the United States and internationally.  This book includes essays by Lilly Wei, Eleanor Heartney, John Massier, Tom Sleigh, Harvey Hixs and Wang Nanming, as well as video stills, drawings, and documentation of the mixed-media installations.

Residency

2019 ArtLab Residency Program at Mountain Lake Biological Station

Sponsored by the University of Virginia, I have been invited to participate in the 2019 ArtLab Residency Program at Mountain Lake Biological Station in Giles County, Virginia as The Lucille Walton Fellow.  As the Walton Fellow I will be giving a lecture on July 16th at Mountain Lake.   

ArtLab at Mountain Lake Biological Station is a 2-week summer residency that gives artists the opportunity to work at the University of Virginia’s biological field station and share research or collaborate with scientists   Set on a beautiful mountaintop in southwestern Virginia, Mountain Lake offers miles of trails, wildlife, and access to diverse biological collections (the herbarium, preserved mammals, birds, insects and reptiles). 

The opportunity to participate in this residency is of particular significance to me because, since 2006,  I have been researching and developing a River Fugues project on the New River which flows through Giles County.
