[BKARTS] Women of Letters Exhibit Extended

Dear Friends,
The Women of Letters exhibition detailed below has been extended until the end of April.

Exhibition at the William Andrews Clark Library
Los Angeles, California

Women of Letters

The exhibit, juried by Jennifer Schaffner, will focus on the work of a group of women printers and book artists who live and work here in Southern California. The group, Women of Letters, has existed for over twenty-five years and includes Marion Baker, Nancy Bloch, Carolee Campbell, Jean Gillingwators, Susan King, Jill Littlewood, Kitty Maryatt, Katherine Ng, Bonnie Thompson Norman, Robin Price, Nancy Turner, and Donna Westerman. The exhibit focuses on their work in letterpress printing, printmaking, binding, papermaking, photography and conservation.

Women of Letters was formed in May of 1980 as the direct result of an extraordinary week-long letterpress class led by Francis Butler the previous month at the Woman's Building in Los Angeles. After a frenzy of activity during which Francis encouraged her students to "claim your own stories" and to "do your own work", Susan King gathered together classmates Marion Baker, Kitty Maryatt and Bonnie Thompson Norman to continue discussions about letterpress printing, focusing on how to choose appropriate typefaces for projects. Over the last twenty-six years, that focus has shifted and broadened. Women of Letters meets approximately every six weeks to show and to discuss completed projects, as well as to critique ongoing work in printing, binding, printmaking, photography and conservation.

The William Andrews Clark Library is located at
2520 Cimarron Street
Los Angeles, CA 90018
