Bill Hosterman

Bill Hosterman investigates the relationship between the way that the natural environment is defined by the human journey, and the manner in which humans are defined by nature. Hosterman works in drawing and printmaking and has exhibited his work nationally and internationally. Hosterman holds a BFA and an MFA degrees with a concentration in printmaking and studied printmaking and art in South Africa on a Fulbright Scholarship. Hosterman is an Associate Professor in the Department of Art and Design at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, MI. He enjoys hiking and being on the water and previously completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.
