The Magic Child Repository, April 7 - May 7, 2011

My artist book/zine FORMAL APOLOGY is on view April 7 - May 7 at the Magic Child Repository, Group show of handmade books curated by Art Middleton at CRAFTLAND in Providence, RI.

Mr. Middleton asked me to create an image for the postcard. so if you've ever wanted to know what my sketch book looks like or how I store my x-actos---today is your lucky day.

I am also collaborating with Artist Mentor Fellow, Emmy Bright to create some artist book workshops for high school students during Providence Public Schools' Spring Break (APRIL 18th-23rd) at New Urban Arts.

Please join us @ CRAFTLAND on April 7th for the opening of the Magic Child Repository.

The Magic Child Repository is a month long celebration of handmade books highlighting local and national independent presses. The show investigates the line between the designed art object and the book, showing that design and construction can inform how a collection of writing may be enjoyed on different levels, and how different disciplines can inform and embolden each other to create a product that is dynamic and unique.

Opening reception Thursday, April 7th from 5-8pm!
Please also join us for a story event with Art and Walker on Saturday, April 9th at 8pm.

Showcase sans statements by Greg Cook

The Providence Phoenix just published a review by Greg Cook of the Crossing Currents Exhibit.

Review: 'Crossing Currents: Feminism Now' at URI

Culture Stops: the Abscence of Art

"On Thursday, March 10th, 2011, you will be asked to witness a world devoid of creativity, imagination and thought: America after culture stops.

Culture Stops! is a citizen-driven, peaceful day of action by individuals and organizations in the creative sector across the United States who share the simple belief that the power of creative thought is the lifeblood of democracy.

We come together to call attention to the deep and widespread cuts, proposed by Congress and the President to federal funding for the arts and humanities, heritage and preservation, arts education and a host of related federal programs that quietly fuel the creative sector."
