Exhibit Title: The Land
Artists: Bill Hosterman and Ed Wong-Ligda

Bill Hosterman

In his work, Bill Hosterman investigates the relationship between the way that the natural environment is defined by the human journey, and the manner in which humans are defined by nature. Hosterman works in drawing and printmaking and has exhibited his work nationally and internationally. Hosterman holds BFA and MFA degrees with a concentration in printmaking, and studied printmaking and art in South Africa on a Fulbright Scholarship.

In California he worked half-time as a graphic designer/illustrator and half-time as a painter. After moving to Michigan, Wong-Ligda became a full-time assistant and associate professor at the Kendall College of Art and Design, where he was also the chair of design studies. In 1999 he became a full professor at Grand Valley State University and was the coordinator of Illustration until his retirement at the end of the 2014-15 academic year.
