HAND, VOICE, & VISION: Artists’ Books from the Women’s Studio Workshop

Opening: Now - Closing: 5 February 2011

HAND, VOICE, & VISION: Artists’ Books from the Women’s Studio Workshop

 

 

Collectors of Hand-Made-Books may well recognize some of the Limited-Edition works in this interesting show, which features 40 books by 36 women-artists, published over the past 30 years.

 

All of them were produced with the Aid & Encouragement of the Womens’-Studio-Workshop, founded in 1974 by Ann Kalmbach, Tatana Kellner, Anita Wetzel, & Barbara Leoff Burge, each of whom is a Woman-Artist in her own right.

 

Nearly 200 woman-artist-bookmakers have been able to work in the Studios, taking advantage not only of its facilities, but also receiving Technical-Expertise!

 

Currently, five new Artists’ Books are published each year. The issues, ideas, materials, methods, & formats are diverse: reflecting a wide range of views & styles.

 

Stressed is "the Visionary-Nature of Artwork that forges New-Directions in the medium of Book-Arts.”

 

The Workshop provides Residencies, Fellowships, Internships, & Classes. These attract artists worldwide.
