Faculty Associate and UW-Madison alumni Michael Velliquette’s exhibition at Edgewood College Art Gallery literally jumps off the wall. His cut paper assemblages are paired with text by Quan Barry. If you were unable to visit the exhibit when it was installed, take a moment to see photos of the Loose Strife exhibition at this link.
I discovered the summer issue of the Friends of the Library magazine in the office. Not only does the cover showcase one of the submissions from the Paper in Motion portfolio from Hand Papermaking but it has an excellent article about the Artists’ Book Collection in the Kohler Art Library. You can see some “Behind the Scene” photos of the studio setup.
The Summer 2012 edition is in print. It is the fourth edition that I have designed. Hand Papermaking is the best resource for all aspects of papermaking. This issue is dedicated to information for papermaking studios and equipment. Every issue has a few samples of actual handmade paper. You can see a photograph of a sample spread in the Hand Papermaking gallery. Try getting that tactical delight from an eBook! Keep this publication going. Subscription information at Hand Papermaking.org.
Photography related posts and information will be inserted to my teaching site. Keeping tabs on different web locations take up too much time which is better spent creating new content. Instead of trying to manage different sites, some of my photographic work will be integrated in this teaching site. Two photography links are located on the right Navigation sidebar, Photography archive and Flickr photo gallery. They will display current photographs.
Madison, Wisconsin. Dennis Weidemann held a book release party announcing the publication of his new book, Cut from Plain Cloth. His book showcases photographs from many local photographers. He interviewed several of the people that protested during one of the many demonstrations that were held this spring. About 15 of my photographs are included in the book. The book is available at many local bookshops. The book can be purchased directly from the author from this link cutfromplaincloth.com. My Flickr account has photos on display here.
