Sandra Kroupa lecture 2/7/01



In conjunction with the current exhibition of Sarah Chamberlain's book
arts and printed works at the Collins Galley, Sandra Kroupa will give a
talk on the current state of fine press books and artists books.

Sandra Kroupa is the Book Arts Librarian in Manuscripts, Special
Collections, University Archives Division at the University of Washington
Libraries.  She has worked in Special Collection for 32 years, most of
that time involved with the book arts.  Sandra writes, lectures, teaches
classes, curates exhibitions, and gives workshops on topics related to the
book arts, both historical and modern.  A founding member of the Book Arts
Guild, Sandra has apprenticed to a bookbinder, owns two letterpresses, and
takes as many workshops as possible to better assist students in
understanding book history and creating their own books.

Sandra's talk, open to the public, is on Wednesday, February 7, 2001, at
7 pm at the US Bank Room, ground floor of the Multnomah County Library's
Central Library, 801 SW 10th, Portland, OR, 97205.

The Sarah Chamberlain exhibition, featuring a recent acquisition to the
John Wilson Room of almost all of her entire printed output, along with
related archival materials such as book dummies, printing samples, and
woodblocks, is in the Collins Gallery, 3rd floor, of Central Library, and
will be on view until February 28, 2001.

Please direct any questions about the exhibition or talk to me.
