The Sunday Paper #457
April 23, 2023
I had the pleasure of interviewing Jane Ingram Allen on Paper Talk. Allen is a sculptor and installation artist who uses hand papermaking with natural materials and collaborative processes to create indoor and outdoor artworks that raise public awareness about environmental issues. Enjoy our conversation!
The Center for the Visual Arts Gallery, located on the Lincroft campus of Brookdale Community College in New Jersey, presents Entanglements, featuring work by ecofeminist artist-educator Amanda Thackray. Thackray creates complex forms referencing abandoned, lyrically floating, tangled netting with paper rope.
Coming up in Middlebury, Vermont: an exhibit at the Jackson Gallery at Town Hall Theater, which will be on view April 21 – June 10. Skylights is a collection of works on paper by Winslow Colwell, who takes the simple kite to a new and whimsical spot in the virtual sky. (Fun fact: our son will be starting a 1-year masters program in Japanese at Middlebury in July).
Madrid-based artist Julia Yus takes us back to the delight in discovering that first pop-up book in her beautiful, hand-crafted paper illustrations.
- My Red Cliff Paper Retreat will take place August 21-25, 2023. Come explore a variety of papers that can be made by hand, cut, folded, stitched and assembled in a variety of ways to create books, wall hangings, sculpture, lighting and more.
- This looks like a great opportunity – a paid book artist residency at Maine Media.
- If you live near Portland, OR, check out this class: Light Through the Branches with Charissa Brock.

A huge thank you to those who sent map strips for my Weaving the World Together project. I am busy processing the entries and exploring models.
