Ernst (K.S.) collection

K.S. Ernst has been writing poetry and making artwork since the 1960s. Her pieces span visual poetry, digital art, and fine art, incorporating sculpture, multimedia, works on paper, artists’ books, painting, fiber arts, and digital works. She has also participated in artist residencies, lectures, and performances with the Be Blank Consort, and runs Press Me Close, which publishes books, postcards, and T-shirts of visual poetry. The K.S. Ernst Collection (1965-2016) contains original dimensional work of visual poetry, works on paper, prints of digital work, and prints of images of work, as well as catalogs of her work. Included in the descriptions of pieces are the catalog numbers that reference Ernst's very detailed catalogs of her work.
