Barbara Manger

Artist, Printmaker

Barb Manger in the studio

Artist, printmaker Barbara Manger works in her studio overlooking the Milwaukee River in Grafton, Wisconsin.  This vantage point, a life lived near lakes and rivers and her love of paddling kayaks and canoes inform the unique prints she calls "riverworks".  Using watercolor or printer's ink, she combines woodblocks, linoleum blocks, stamps found and carved and stencils. She prints these both by hand and on an etching press onto handmade Japanese hanga paper to create wandering rivers and flowing waters. Many of these works are in corporate and private collections in the Midwest and are exhibited in galleries and museums.

An experienced teacher of college students and other adults, Manger conducts monotype workshops in her studio and teaches additional printmaking workshops at such sites as The Clearing in Door County.
