Ashantilly center and the Ashantilly Press were excited to have Frank Brannon accept our summer residency program. Through the support of generous donors, the Center was again able to offer the residency. Frank, a native of Tennessee, currently lives near Dillsboro, North Carolina. He is a graduate of the M.F.A. in the Book Arts Program at the University of Alabama and is proprietor of SpeakEasy Press. Frank is a printmaking instructor with Southwestern Community College in western North Carolina and an adjunct book arts instructor with Western Carolina University. He also teaches Letterpress, Book Arts and Papermaking at his studio.
During his time here Frank presented a program on his work and research with the Cherokee Language.
We have Broadsides on sale at the center that Frank printed at the Ashantilly Press.
