Hagstrom receives SGC’s Teaching Excellence in Printmaking Award

10 Apr 2014    

UNL Department of Art and Art History Alumnus Fred Hagstrom (M.F.A. 1982) received the Teaching Excellence in Printmaking Award from Southern Graphics Council at their annual international conference in March.

He also recently named the 2014 Minnesota Book Artist Award winner for his new piece titled “Passage.” This annual award, presented by Minnesota Center for Book Arts and the Minnesota Book Awards, recognizes a Minnesota book artist or book artist collaborative group for excellence of a new artistic work.

Hagstrom is a distinguished professor of art at Carleton College since 1984. He teaches printmaking, drawing, art and narrative, and artist’s books.

Hagstrom travels frequently to Australia and to New Zealand, where study of the art of the Maori has influenced his perception of narrative in artwork. His prints have been shown in galleries throughout the United States and are featured in numerous museum collections.

His work can be found in the Groveland Gallery, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Walker Art Center, and he has exhibited in national and international competitive exhibitions. He has also received McKnight and Blandin Foundation Fellowships.
