Ms. Dove is a printmaker and photographer currently residing in Missoula, Montana. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Art, University of Montana. Professor Dove is responsible for undergraduate and graduate students, teaching all printmaking disciplines, photography, and special courses integrating printmaking, photography and digital media.
She has conducted extensive research into non–toxic printmaking processes, taught dozens of workshops at colleges and universities, received funding to study the integration of digital technology and traditional printmaking practices, and has published her research in the books The Contemporary Printmaker and Non–toxic Intaglio Printmaking, and the British journal “Printmaking Today". Elizabeth received her BFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, and her MFA from Vermont College.
Ms. Dove’s own work is based on traditional printmaking practices (concerns with repetition, imprinting, and the matrix) but has expanded in media to include earthworks, site specific sculpture and installation. Her main interests are investigating the passage of time, subjective scientific methods, and how one’s body can register and can communicate history and memories.
Corvidae Press, in residence with Centrum, is a guild of some 35 members working on various printmaking techniques in their newly renovated studio in Building 205, Fort Worden. Contact: Bill Curtsinger 360-774-0750
