Brisbane artist Glen Skein will be returning to Barratt Galleries this weekend to run a second weekend workshop. The first workshop was fantastic and produced some great books. Glen is known Australia wide for his assemblage and book works and it was wonderful to work with him over the weekend. There are a couple of places left for the upcoming workshop so let me know if you would like to join an eclectic group of artists for this great opportunity.…

A beautiful exhibition of cyanotype prints and books will be opening today at Barratt Galleries in Alstonville by Toowoomba photographers/artist book makers Doug Spowart and Victoria Cooper. The cyanotype prints are amazing and the documenting of the process involved in making these prints is shown in the beautifully bound artist book 'white shadows' which comes in its own perspex slip case. As well as the exhibition Doug and Victoria will also host a cyanotpye workshop at the gallery on… Continue

(sub)missive artist book project

sub)Missive is a new mail art project investigating the dissemination of ideas with particular reference to (mis)communication and power relations.

Taking the hierarchical construct as a brief, each participant will devise a set of instructions to create a new bookwork. Instructions may be comprehensive or restricted, ranging from the single word to the diagrammatic. Using the social networking forum as a platform for collaboration, each participant will contact the interested party… Continue

'without boundaries' artist talks

Posted on December 3, 2008 at 14:00 0 Comments

It was great to finally get to Sydney last weekend to see 'Without Boundaries'. A bonus to be there last Saturday when some of the artists were talking about their books.

Monica Oppen spoke about the collaborative process between Peter Lyssiotis, Theo Strasser and herself during the making of the powerful and emotive book 'Eyewitness'.'Eyewitness' is about the world we live in now and the processes include photo transfers with guache and ink on paper and handwritten text. The binding is… Continue

Hi julie, I´m also very happy to know your book is on display at the Trienniale in Vilnius. I plan to go to the opening. I´ll consider uploading some photoes here somewhere at 3.0 ? (In my photogallery maybe? Or at my blog?)

Hi Julie , I'm glad you liked the book! Its good to get feed back from people after they have seen your work...Usually our books slide silently away into quite dust free shelves..Its good to get people to feel through them. Monica mentioned you to me and I will contact you soon. I'm glad the book has left an imprint , a lingering taste....Both Peter and I feel very hopefull for this book to reach out and touch people, and Monica made all this happen for us.......

Ooh, how strange - I just left a comment for you, Julie, but it has disappeared! I must have pressed the wrong button or something. Anyway, I wanted to say that I'm sorry I haven't been in touch since you sent me your exhibition proposal forms - it's been a bit mad here and I lost sight of important things like that! Are you completely booked out now for 2009? Let me know what the situation is, and hopefully I'll be back up your way soon (if SCU will have me as a student!), best wishes, Sara x

Hi Julie, I'm sorry I haven't been in touch since you sent me your exhibition proposal documents... it's been a bit mad here lately and I've realised I need to get back in touch with you about the possibilities... are you completely booked out now for next year? Sara x

Hi Julie

I was looking at your profile and website just yesterday after Monica dropped in last week and mentioned you. I got side tracked before sending you a message so nice that you messaged today!
I look forward to meeting you when you come to Melbourne. Hopefully by then I will have a few more artists involved and have more books on display. I'm disappointed your gallery is so far away as I can't come to see it, it looks beautiful! I have had a little chance to make some zines so that is good - nothing huge but enough to keep going!

Hi Julie, it was great to meet you on Saturday. I really enjoyed seeing all those books again and talking to you. Came home very inspired! Unfortunately I won't be able to get back for the Dianne Longley artist talk. Commitments. Oh, well. Next time.

Hi Julie
Good to hear from you. I hear your SCU show looks great
Yeah I'll get some more to you as soon as I can.
Must get to visit your gallery next time I'm over
Best wishes
