The Sunday Paper #316
June 14, 2020
My next artist’s book continues to take shape. Take a peek at this video of the mock up. I am currently working on the text (title page, my reflections about the work, colophon) which will be letterpress printed. I am also pondering the title (see my thoughts in the heading above). Next steps: make paper, print, stitch, bind, box.
I’m promoting artists here on the blog to help them replace some of their income during the pandemic. Please reach out if you have a paper product to sell that you think my readers will enjoy.
I love these mixed media pieces by Cree Scudder. Cree purchased a collage pack (of commercial papers) from me a few weeks back and has been incorporating them into her work. It is so fun to my scraps turned into works of art!
Earlybird pricing for my online class Paper + Light ends tomorrow (June 15th) at midnight. Sign up for 4 weeks ($145) or 8 weeks ($260). Session one begins July 6th, and I’m happy to send you a supply list to look over before you sign up.
The News from Here:
I got my hair cut this week. I go to a salon where it is usually just me and the hairdresser, so the only difference was that we both wore masks. My husband says he could have done it with the clippers, but that made me a bit nervous!
My artist friend Anne Mavor has a timely and important installation up at The Arts Center in Corvallis, Oregon right now (you can schedule a visit). I Am My White Ancestors: Claiming the Legacy of Oppression is available to travel should you know of a venue that might be interested. This work was created as a first step for White people in particular, to be inspired to participate in the end of racism. Click through to read, listen and learn more. This is powerful work that we should all be doing.
Be kind, stay well, promote peace and make art my friends!
