Map Artist

Based in Millinocket, Maine, Ken Gross is an artist primarily focused on making maps. Self-taught, Ken utilizes traditional printing methods in unconventional ways to depict geographies, a radical change from the maps that he produced as a professional cartographer over a thirty year career. Mostly working with relief prints and etchings, Ken also explores “place” through other media as well including pen and ink and watercolor. The end result, no matter the media, is a piece reflecting an emotional connection with the area being depicted.

I Have Worked With

  • February 2017 to May 2017

    While I was inbetween jobs, Tammy generously provided artwalk training opportunities and avenues for reaching out to the Biddeford commercial and creative communities. I designed a promotional poster and set up a map of venues for 2017.

  • May 2010 to October 2011

    My wife and I were both named as Artist-in-Residence during the time listed. The residency was a wonderful opportunity to not only thrive in a live/work studio, but also was a vehicle for engaging with the community through art shows and through organizing and working community events. To this day, we still maintain our relationships with our fellow ArtDogs and with the Gardiner, Maine Community as well.
