New Book Art: Artist Talk
February 21, 2019, 6:30 pm
Each year the Center invites three talented emerging artists, who have demonstrated a commitment to book arts, the opportunity to spend a year at the Center. Each scholar has 24/7 access to the Center studios and equipment, and the opportunity to take advanced classes with master book arts instructors here at the Center. The year culminates in a group show for the artists to exhibit the work they have created while in residence. This year’s show features the works of Laura Byrne, Elizabeth Castaldo, and Ben Denzer.
For this evening’s Artist Talk, join us to listen in on each Scholar’s experience over the past year at The Center. Hear about their work prior to their residency here, and what led to the work on exhibition. At the end of the presentations, the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions of each artist.
