We're very happy to present Susan Share as our Sally R. Bishop Faculty Fellow this year. Bishop Faculty Fellows give a lecture, exhibit a body of work in our Spotlight exhibition series and teach a master class for advanced artists in the field. Last night, Friday, Susan gave a slide lecture about the body of work she's created over the past ten years, since moving from Brooklyn, NY to Anchorage, Alaska. Susan talked about process and materials, as well as the ways her work relates to books, sculpture and performance. She also demonstrated the workings of a performance prop/ book object she made, called Carrots, Anyone? Here's some photos of the lecture:
She also taught this weekend a Master Class called Imbedded Thoughts, that deals with layering of content and images through the use of materials like wet felted wool, acrylic gel medium and hog gut. The students were ecstatic. Here's some photos of the workshop:
The Friday night lecture also kicked off our fall series of special events, which includs readings, lectures and professional development workshops. We're excited to bring a full schedule of programming this fall- be sure to check out the whole schedule of events through December-posted on the events page on this website.

The opening of our fall exhibition, Production, Not Reproduction, was a great event, coinciding with Printed Matter's Art Book Fair, which helped bring in a new crowd. The day after the opening we hosted a spirited discussion featuring Tony White, guest curator, Brad Freeman, and Jan Voss of Boekie Woekie. Brad and Jan discussed their careers in the world of offset printing, and talked about the differences between the European and American book worlds. We're happy to host this exhibition through December- be sure to visit the Center to check it out.
Here's some photos from the opening and the panel discussion:
