Space Gallery show

I'm getting caught up here keeping track of some of my goings on.

In January I was invited to be a part of a show at Space Gallery in Jacksonville, called A More Perfect Union.

There's a blurb about the show here:

The opening was super- showcasing the diverse and growing Jacksonville arts scene.

University of North Florida

I've been neglecting various things, including updating here, because I started teaching at the University of North Florida as a Visiting Assistant Professor in Printmaking. I'm teaching a lot of old and new stuff, the students are really engaged and I like Florida so far. I will hopefully post some things as I go along.

Artist Talk and Workshop at Oberlin College

I was invited to give an artist's talk and workshop in Nanette Yannuzzi's book arts class at Oberlin College in April. Nanette specifically asked for me to do a more advanced book structure with her bookbinding enthusiast students. So, over two days we combined making paste paper with a drum leaf binding. Here are some photos from the workshop.

Talk and Workshop at Wake Forest University on February 22

I was invited to Wake Forest to give a talk by the Creative Writing and the Early Modern and Medieval Studies programs. The talk was titled "Recycled Possibilities and New Combinations: Book Structure from Medieval Europe to Contemporary Artist's Books" and gave an overarching trajectory of codex-based book structure while asking some questions about form (such as what does it mean to work primarily in a form that has remained largely unchanged for the past 1500 years?) and starting a conversation about current small press publishing, as impacted by the onset of digital technologies.

This talk was followed by a workshop with Wake Forest creative writing and art students, where we were able to talk about some of their plans for publishing projects and work on a couple of small structures.

Revealed Terrain: The Semantics of Landscape, at the Center for Book Arts

I'm pretty psyched to be included in this show about landscape, with various luminaries of printmaking and the book arts. It opens this Friday at the Center for Book Arts in New York City, and will be up through the beginning of April.
