New work! I’ve been experimenting even further with Phragmites Australis, a.k.a., Common Reed. Aptly named, this is an invasive plant species found in North America and here in Rhode Island.
I’m happy to announce my latest show, Land Studies, a solo exhibition of my new papermaking work at the AS220 Project Space Gallery in Providence. It’s my first Rhode Island art show! Take a look at my new pulp paintings and sculptural papermaking installations based on sites around Rhode Island and coastal New England.
Not too long ago, I made a road trip to San Antonio, Texas to see the city and make some pulp paintings at the Picante Paper Studio at the Southwest School of Art. The visit was my award won at the 5th National Collegiate Handmade Paper Art Exhibition, shown at Rutgers and the Corcoran Center. Thank-you Beck Whitehead for being a great host!
As promised, here are photos of the art installations shown in Uncharted Territories: A Printscape, which was part of this past SGC International Printmaking Conference held in New Orleans, Louisiana. This exhibition features emerging artists in South Louisiana, working in printmaking, handmade paper art, fiber art, video, sculpture and more. Enjoy!
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.
Every year the Yahoo Papermaking Group holds a Swatch Swap, which is an international exchange of handmade paper samples with recipes of how each unique paper was made.
