Dwight Pogue earned his B.F.A. and M.S. from Kansas State College and an M.F.A. from the University of Oklahoma.
Professor Pogue teaches printmaking and drawing. He actively exhibits his work in national and international juried print exhibitions, such as the British International Print Biennale; the Norwegian International Print Triennial; and the Hanga Annual, Tokyo. As a Fulbright recipient, he taught at the Bradford College of Art and Technology in England from 1975-77. He is Founder/Director of the Smith College Print Workshop, which has brought noted artists to Smith to collaborate with master printers in producing limited edition prints since 1984. He has been invited to present the latest advancements in printmaking techniques at ten of the last twelve annual Southern Graphics Council International Conferences.
For three decades Professor Pogue has collaborated with Smith students to conduct research and test new materials and techniques for fine art printmaking. His new book, Printmaking Revolution, features many of his students and some of the prints they produced through class projects in the Harnish Graphics Studio. It also features work by visiting noted artists as they collaborated with master printers who were assisted by Smith students during the annual Smith College Print Workshops.
Printmaking Revolution: New Advancements in Technology, Safety, and Sustainability, published by Watson-Guptill, a division of Random House, was released May 5, 2012 with a book signing at the International Print Center in New York. Written as a college studio textbook, Printmaking Revolution introduces revolutionary techniques for lithography, intaglio and screenprinting, so that the artist-printmaker can easily produce more technically professional prints. The book also offers groundbreaking information on embracing green, petroleum-free, nontoxic materials that comply with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements.
