Judy - hello - I made such a mix up with the numbers for Book # 3. Have you started working on it? If not, would you mind doing Book # 4??? Otherwise I was thinking why cant we just have 6 artists?? What do you think?
Dear Judy: I hope your grandson is better... Little children have the power of love and life with them.My best wishes for him.
I`ll send you some images of our Sand Book soon. Here is a little postcard I made from your drawings... We put them in the sand and then people took some to send to another people living at other shores. I hope you like it. Cheers!!!
Judy, when I get the entry form finalised and sent to you please let other book artists know about the exhibition. We want to involve lot of artists and to make this a significant exhibition.
My plan is also to have some of the artists give a little talk about their works - durng the weekend of the exhibition. I probably will also offer a special workshop to run at the time of the exhibition to stimulate interest.
If i manage to have the person opening it that I want (depends on her timetable) then we my see if she (Adel Outteridge) can also give a short workshop - lts to still organise but it will be quite a show.
Judy, I was one of the book artists that exhibited in the Manly Librarty exhibition. It was a great step for the library and they are planning to hold this exibition again in 2 years time.
I have a group of artists that meet in my workshop (Sydney) each month for general chat, I share ideas and problems. Very much to encourage and stimulate each other. I must try to get images of some of their works on my blog.
I mention this as we welcome othere to join us if they are interested and we, as a group, are behind the organising and preparing for the forthcoming ArtBound artists book exhibition. I guess you are too far away for this but please keep it in mind if you can ever get to Sydney - we meet on a Saturday afternoon from 4.00 to 6.00pm/.
Judy, I am delighted to have you as a friend. Your work, in my mind, is definately part of the exciting world of Artists Books - a form of paper engineering - and a complete statement wih reference, if somewhat loosely, to books.
Please keep in touch and be tempted to join our exhibition due late September this year. I can send detail when the entry forms are complete.
Enjoyed looking at your work shown here but will go to your website for more.
Hello Judy :-) I had to smile - we spell swap - swop here - I lecture art history at university :-) - its like catalogue and catalog I guess! Very glad you are keen to do collaborative book - ok - swap. I am going to start a new discussion. The format is A3 divided landscape in 3, concertina fold.
I have been busy working for nearly 5 months on a very limited edition (3) - each a unique state - artist book- that started with an idea from a print I made last August. And tomorrow I am planning to take some framed work up to the Warringah centre, to leave for possible selection.
Perhaps I will see you at the Manly Library on the 1st April?
The exhibition presents two connected bodies of material: a survey of artists’ books by Australian painter, sculptor and bookmaker Robert Jacks (1942-2014), and an extensive selection of publications drawn from Jacks’ own collection, many of which were purchased from Printed Matter in the early years of the organization.
