New Additions to the AP/RC: Margo Kren

Kren created this suite of lithographs, Dreams and Memories, with Mike Sims of Lawrence Lithography Workshop now located in Kansas City. Concerning this suite, she observed that, “(It) evolved in the early 1980’s while I was working on a series of drawings based on early childhood memories and young adult dreams. At the time in my art I was interested in individual psychology in my story telling — people with all their foibles exposed as compassionately as they are in a Flemish Renaissance painter of peasants Pieter Bruegel. I have always felt in accordance to the writings of Bertolt Brecht and especially his attitude toward his audience. He did not want people reading his works to have emotions but instead to be able to think. With the grant I received from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1982 I began work with Michael Sims in his Lawrence Lithography Workshop in Lawrence KS on a suite of sixteen lithographs based on sixteen drawings I had selected.”
