Channels: by May Babcock, Sarah Hayman, Jessie Hornbrook and Megan Singleton. This past March, I was part of a collaborative handmade paper and video art installation, Channels, which coincided with the SGC International Printmaking 2012 Conference in New Orleans. Channels is part of the art exhibition, Uncharted Territories: A Printscape, which featured emerging artists from South Louisiana working in printmaking based mediums. More photos of the whole show HERE.
Recently, I was in a handmade paper art exhibition at the Haggerty Gallery at the University of Dallas, “Paper in Space.” Click here: www.udallas.edu for complete photos.
Sneak preview! Here are some snippets of an upcoming art exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana that I organized and am collaborating in for the SGC International Printmaking Conference. Uncharted Territories: A Printscape is a collaborative installation by a group of emerging artists in South Louisiana. The installation includes a conglomeration of large format printmaking, papermaking, fiber, video projection, sound and light.
It is about time that I share a few photographs of my Master’s of Fine Arts thesis show, The Latent Landscape, which took place in April 2011 at the Glassell Gallery in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Get ready for some juicy photos of Passing Notes: A Handmade Paper Collaborative Installation at the Gya Gallery at Yeyo Arts Collective in St. Louis, MO. This was a project I was part of in March 2011 with Megan Singleton and Sarah Shearer ( fellow Louisiana State University printmaking and sculpture graduate students).
My print/hand paper art was accepted into the, here it goes, 5th National Collegiate Handmade Paper Art Triennial. This exhibition is juried by Jane Milosch, and sponsored by the Brodsky Center at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey and the Corcoran Center of Art + Design.
Cinclaire Study 4 was part of a series of work shown at The Latent Landscape, my MFA Thesis exhibition in April, 2011. More from that show can be seen at my website, www.maybabcock.com. It is a charcoal paper cast woodcut with charcoal drawing, string and pulp painting. Don’t ask, because my process was most likely even more complicated than summarized. Maybe that’s a future blog post. Maybe.
I did work from observational sketches of the out-of-use Cinclaire Sugar Plantation, across the river from here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Interested in my artist statement? Click here.
Other than working at my real job and attempting to run this blog, another recent activity has been organizing an art exhibition for the upcoming SGC International Printmaking Conference, Navigating Currents. This year, it will be in New Orleans, Louisiana, and only a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from Baton Rouge.
