Artist in Residence – Ann Ginsburgh Hofkin

Ann Ginsburgh Hofkin received a BA in Philosophy from Mount Holyoke College (1965) and an MSS in Community Organization from Bryn Mawr College (1967).

Switching gears entirely, she studied at the Ansel Adams workshop in Yosemite, CA in 1980, and since that time, she has journeyed in both a literal and figurative sense across many types of terrain, always looking for a sense of place.

Here, in Iceland, she has uncovered a tremendous natural “pull,” if you will; sensing a unique level of past and present energy all around her, she has only begun to explore the potential meaning of what these surroundings command and what the inhabitants therein are living with every day.

Her work is included in public and private collections, including the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Medtronic, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Mount Holyoke College, Jerusalem Theatre in Israel, and Fidelity Investments. More information is available at
