During Easthampton's Bookfest I will have a selection of books available for purchase at Big Wheel Press located in the Cottage Street Studios.
I will also be teaching a letterpress and poetry book printing workshop. To sign up for the workshop follow this link to Big Wheel Press.
Holly Wren Spaulding will be working with class participants to collaboratively create a cento poem. We will then cast our lines of type by hand setting and casting on a Ludlow. We will work together to lock up the book on a Vandercook SP20 press. The class will end with everyone working on folding and editioning the books. Everyone will go home with copies of the book.
I will be selling my work at the OnTrend Market located at the Hadley Farms Meeting House.
I will be debuting some new work so be sure to get there early and find me! Mention that you saw this listing on my site for a surprise gift!
Pop-Up Gallery at the Wauregan is a multimedia show with nineteen different artists from all around the Pioneer Valley. The show was curated by Lisa Hersey, of Antler Editions, and Arielle Jessop. The opening reception was held during Brick Coworkshop's Third Anniversary Party on August 13th and ended with Celebrate Holyoke on August 28th. This gallery was located in the Wauregan building in a currently unused space. This gallery allowed for locals to get to experience an art gallery that they are generally not exposed to in Holyoke. On display were photographs, oil paintings, embroideries, jewelry and hand dyed textiles.
