New Book Art: Scholar Residents of 2018
January 18 – March 30, 2019
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.
