[BKARTS] Exhibition - Jocelyn Curry: The Cedar Branch Chronicle, with other recent work



JOCELYN CURRY:  THE CEDAR BRANCH CHRONICLE, WITH OTHER RECENT WORK



Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers is pleased to announce an exhibition of the
work of Jocelyn Curry. "Jocelyn Curry: The Cedar Branch Chronicle, with
other recent work" will run thru December 31, 2007.  An opening reception
for the artist is planned for Thursday December 6th, from 6-8pm.  Join us
for the exhibition and some holiday cheer; music & wine will be provided.

The exhibit's primary piece, 'The Cedar Branch Chronicle' was designed
specifically for its location at Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers.

For 'The Cedar Branch Chronicle', Curry collected one natural artifact and
one man-made artifact during her daily walk. Without any self-imposed rules
other than scale, upon returning, a watercolor 'journal-entry' composition
was created from these found objects on a uniform 4 x 8" card. The
thirty-one daily paintings are suspended from a dramatic 17-foot long cedar
branch found on the shores of Puget Sound near the artist's home. The
finished installation is essentially an alternative book-form, the
paintings/pages free to be touched, and turned by the viewer, allowing for a
rather kinetic experience of the author/artist's 'illustrated diary' of her
daily ritual over the course of July, 2007.

A selection of work from the exhibit can also be viewed online

Jocelyn Curry is a native of Seattle and a widely-known master calligrapher.
Her work has been featured in the 'Letter Arts Review Annual', and her
clients include Seattle Chocolates, Nordstrom, and Schurman Fine Papers.
Curry is also a professional illustrator who draws heavily on her natural
surroundings, often finding inspiration in the otherwise 'commonplace'
elements of the environment. 

This is Jocelyn's second solo exhibition at Wessel & Lieberman. Her
"Letterbox Series", a collection of three-dimensional collages featuring her
calligraphy, was shown in 1995.

Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers is located in the historic Pioneer Square
district of Seattle, at 208 First Avenue South between Main and Washington
streets.  Shop hours are Monday thru Saturday, 11-6.
