[BKARTS] Fore-Edge Painting Workshop Announcement



Fore-Edge Painting Lecture and Workshops April 8-10, 2005

       The Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries are pleased to
sponsor, The Curious Art of Fore-Edge Painting, presented by Martin
Frost at the Milton S. Eisenhower Library in Baltimore, Maryland.

       Designed to appeal to both painters and book workers
(conservators, binders, book artists and crafts people) of all levels,
the program will include an illustrated lecture describing the genesis
and progress of this little known art form and will feature painted
books from the artist's own collection.  The one-day, hands-on
workshop will teach the techniques of English water coloring onto
book-edges.

       Martin Frost teaches fore-edge painting in England and has
taught the art in Northern California.  He has painted over 3,000
book-edges and his work can be found in many institutions, national and
private collections worldwide.
