About the Instructor

Aaron John Bourque is an artist, photographer, and educator. Bourque's work looks to the land as a metaphor for both contemporary and historic American society and culture. His process is research-based and involves a long-term investment in an idea, place, or concept that finds tension between the past and the present. His landscapes search for connection to the places we dwell and the histories we leave behind. Bourque is the founding manager of the Center for Arts and Graphic Equipment at Mount Ida College. His most recent exhibitions have been at the Vermont Center for Photography and at the Mugar Art Center at Colby-Sawyer College. He co-curates exhibitions as part of “The Big ¯\_(ツ)_/¯,” a collaborative artist group.  Bourque holds a Bachelor of Arts in History, a Post-baccalaureate Certificate in Studio Art, and a Master's of Fine Art. Though originally from New Hampshire, Bourque now lives in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston.
