John McKaig: Always Outward or Homeward Bound

John McKaig is a painter and printmaker who teaches at Interlochen Arts Academy in Northern Michigan and has recently completed artist residencies at the Williamsport Public Art Academy in Pennsylvania, and the Auckland Print Studio in New Zealand. John will work in our studio to create a multi-color relief print to be exhibited with his paintings and prints in the KBAC Gallery. John says, “My work is based in a strong sense of drawing, and I use images of objects (mostly ships) and the human figure to communicate ideas of our collective spiritual connection and passage through life.”
