Free with Registration.

Dawn Kramlich is a Texas-born artist and writer living and working in Philadelphia. Her work examines systems of power in language through the disciplines of painting and poetry amid a lens of queer studies and intersectional feminism. Kramlich earned her BA degree from Muhlenberg College, producing the first cross-major creative honors thesis (ekphrastic painting + poem pairs) in the history of Muhlenberg’s English and Art departments. While at Muhlenberg, Kramlich became a member of the Phi Beta Kappa National Honors Society and graduated magna cum laude with honors. She then moved to Philadelphia and earned her MFA in Studio Art from Moore College of Art & Design, culminating in an art installation and written thesis titled "Palimpsestual Responses: The Limits of Language in Contemporary Society.”

Kramlich has shown her work widely in the US and internationally in Ireland. Most notably, her work was included in Maus Contemporary's Capitolism: The Normalization of Political Violence in the United States exhibition in 2021, Rowan University Gallery's exhibition entitled Dialogic alongside John Giorno, Jaume Plensa, Jenny Holzer, and Glenn Ligon in 2013, in the 4-person installation-based exhibition entitled PaperScapes at the Philadelphia Art Alliance in 2017, and in the 3-person exhibition titled Beyond the Screen at the Main Line Art Center in 2018. Her artwork has been published in "Muhlenberg Magazine," "CODAmagazine," "THE magazine," and the online version of "Creative Quarterly."
