Professor Emeritus of Art

Dwight Pogue


Dwight Pogue teaches printmaking and drawing. He actively exhibits his work in national and international juried print exhibitions and is represented in various collections, including Aetna Life Insurance; the Oklahoma State Art Collection; the Japan Print Association, Tokyo; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; and the Portland Museum of Art, Oregon.

As a Fulbright recipient, Pogue taught at the Bradford College of Art and Technology in England from 1975 to 1977. He is the founder and director of the annual Smith College Print Workshop, which has brought noted artists to Smith to collaborate with master printers in producing limited edition prints since 1984.

Pogue's book Printmaking Revolution: New Advancements in Technology, Safety, and Sustainability, is a college studio textbook introducing revolutionary techniques for lithography, intaglio and screenprinting, so that the artist­-printmaker can easily produce more technically professional prints. The book also offers groundbreaking information on embracing sustainable, petroleum­-free materials that comply with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements./p>

Printmaking Revolution features several of Pogue's students and some of the prints they produced through class projects in the Harnish Graphics Studio. It also features work by noted visiting artists in collaboration with master printers who were assisted by Smith students during the annual Smith College Print Workshops.

Pogue has been a visiting artist at various venues, including Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, Scotland; Rhode Island School of Design; Penland School of Crafts, North Carolina; and Haystack Mountain, Deer Isle, Maine. Since 1999 he has been invited regularly to present his collaborative research findings at annual SGC international conferences.
