Solange Kellermann earned a B.A. from the University of Southern Maine in Studio Art (2016) with a major in Printmaking and a minor in Book Arts. She also holds a B.A. in Education and an M.A. in Public Policy. Born in France and raised in New Jersey, she has lived in Portland, Maine for over four decades.
She is a current member of the University of Southern Maine’s Kate Cheney Chappell ‘83 Center for Book Arts Critique Group.
She uses printmaking, paper engineering, photography, fiber arts and sculpture in her books and other works. Her books tend to focus on two areas: recording the changes in her neighborhood; recording personal and family history. When not engaged in those areas, she enjoys experimenting with binding techniques, paper engineering, printing without a press, and just plain mucking around.
She has participated in group shows at USM’s Glickman Family Gallery and Wishcamper Center, Portland Public Library’s Lewis Gallery, and the Center Street Gallery in Bath, Maine. She had a solo show at USM’s Wishcamper Center and was chosen to participate in the 2016 USM Juried Student Show.
