About the Instructor:

Meg Pohlod is a print artist based in Reno, Nevada and the Bay Area. She is the current Fellowship Award Artist at Black Rock Press, and an Instructor of Record at the University of Reno. Prior to this award she was the lead Printmaking Faculty at Laney Community College in Oakland, California. From 2018-2022 the Artist Residency Manager at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California. She received her MFA in printmaking from the University of Alberta in 2017. Her printmaking practice stems from an interest in the concepts of recollection and resolution, and questions what happens to the body, both internally and externally, when distressing memories are triggered. This visual research offers a unique and personal lens from which to view theories of memory and contemporary discourses of trauma, family, what is remembered and how it is manifested. Pohlod has exhibited work, and been a visiting artist nationally and internationally. She is currently working on an international collaboration project with artist and educator Heather Leier.
