Michele Burgess works in book arts, printmaking, painting, and sculpture. She received her MFA at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. She is the Director of Brighton Press and collaborates with other artists and poets on projects that involve the book as an art medium. For the past four decades, her work has explored palimpsest, time and gesture, erasure, and “repair,” currently within a series called “The Stratigraphic Archives.” Burgess’s artist’s books are housed in over seventy-five public collections across the country, including the Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts in San Francisco, Houghton Library Special Collections at Harvard University, Lilly Library at Indiana University, Minneapolis Institute of Art, National Museum of Women in the Arts, the New York Public Library, the University of Vermont, Stanford University Library, and the Toledo Art Museum. Burgess has served as guest lecturer, curator, and artist-in-residence at numerous museums, universities, and arts organizations, such as the Getty Research Institute and the Library of Congress. Exhibitions of her books include the Musee d’Art Americain in Giverny, France, Fresno Art Museum, Cranbrook Art Museum, Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, and the Mingei International Museum of Folk and Craft art in San Diego. Her work was recently featured in Artists and Their Books / Books and Their Artists by Marsha Reid and Glenn Phillips (Getty Research Institute, 2018). Burgess taught for many years in the art departments at San Diego State University and the University of San Diego, as well as the Putney School Summer Arts Programs under the direction of Brian Cohen.
