Welcome! Updated: September 13, 2013
Coming SOON to the site: A new installation project page, new books and paper works, and new MakerCentric pages.
It's been a busy summer, and fall will be only a little less so:
Currently, a few copies of (S)Edition are on view as part of Unbound: Artists Books by Jentel Foundation Residents, curated by Mary Jane Edwards, at Sagebrush Arts Center in Sheridan, WY. The show opened on August 29 and runs through October 5.
I'm pleased to be the October visiting artist at Kalamazoo Book Arts Center, MI; there will be a solo exhibition, Synesthetic Texts, opening on October 4 and a one-day workshop, Kozo and Color, taking place on October 5, and currently open for registration (scroll down).
I'm also happy to be a panelist on High Shrinkage fiber, moderated by Emily Cook, at the Friends of Dard Hunter conference titled Papers, Please in St. Louis, MO, and to be participating in the outdoor exhibition Intertext, curated by Jennifer Baker. Intertext begins October 17 and the panel takes place during the morning session on October 18.
On October 20, I'm honored to once again be a part of the annual Fall Salon and Artwalk at the Ragdale Foundation in Lake Forest, IL; the event is part of Chicago Artists Month. I'm also eagerly looking forward to a five-week residency at Ragdale from October 28 - November 22.
I'll finish out 2013 with the always great Gallery Artists Group Exhibition at ZIA Gallery, opening November 30th and running through January 4.
Earlier this summer, I participated in the incredible new Open Studios Residency at Haystack and taught Kozo and Color at the wonderful Seastone Papers on Martha's Vineyard. Both were new and stellar experiences. In July and August, I was fortunate to have returned to teach two wonderful 3-D Paper classes at both Penland and the Morgan Conservatory: thanks to all: great groups of people!
I was also happy to participate in Emily Martin's Pantone Postcard Project.
