Resnick is a trained printmaking artist who engages with a range of materials from wood burning to digital signal processing. In addition to her 20-year history of exhibitions, Resnick operates Project Gallery out of an abandoned warehouse in Wichita, Kansas, where she showcases the works of artists from around the country as well as within Wichita.

According to her artist biography on her website, Resnick uses her range of chosen materials “to produce large-scale, thought-provoking, sui generis works.” She considers herself a cultural advocate and commits time each year to community activities that support other artists and their works.

Shannon Johnston, associate professor of art and director of the Steckline Gallery, looks forward to featuring Resnick’s printmaking installation in the gallery.

“Ann has been a champion of the arts in Wichita and is a prolific artist,” Johnston said. “She currently has exhibits at Fisch Haus and the Ulrich Museum of Art. It is an honor to have Ann at Steckline.”

The Steckline Gallery is located inside the De Mattias Fine Arts Center on the Newman campus, 3100 McCormick Ave. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment.
