[BKARTS] Frederic W. Goudy Lecture & Workshop (CA)

Frederic W. Goudy Lecture

Proximity and Process:
Glaister and Moore Offer Perspectives on the Work of each Other
Suzanne Moore & Don Glaister
February 23, 2008
7:00 p.m.
Scripps College Humanities Auditorium
Scripps College
Claremont, California

Don Glaister and Suzanne Moore live on Vashon Island near Seattle.
They share a home with their dog Rothko.

Suzanne Moore is a painter and lettering artist who combines contemporary vision with traditional techniques. Her painting, drawing and lettering find their way to the surfaces of artists’ books, broadsides and limited edition books. Suzanne sees books as interactive portable spaces created to transport readers, offering perspectives on such subjects as the intersection of art with science and philosophy, letterforms as visual subject, and Sequoyah’s Cherokee writing system. She uses the book form to explore verbal and visual ideas through the interplay of word and image.

Suzanne’s books appear in private collections and institutional collections in North America and Europe. She is one of two American artists, working with a Wales-based team under the direction of Donald Jackson, illuminating the Saint John’s Bible.

Donald Glaister is a book artist now living and working in the Pacific Northwest. His thirty-year professional career in design bookbinding has centered on the exploration, development and use of unexpected binding materials, visual humor and spontaneous expression, while working within the classical framework of the European binding form. The scope of his recent work has expanded to include two editions of artist’s books, Brooklyn Bridge: A Love Song in 2002, and Angelique and the Pearl Necklace in 2007.

Don has taught binding and design privately and as professor of Book Arts at the University of Alabama. His bindings appear in institutional and private collections throughout North America and Europe.

Frederic W. Goudy Workshop

ko-lazh: “A kind of surrealist art in which bits of flat objects, as newspaper, cloth, etc. are pasted together in incongruous relationship for their symbolic or suggestive effect. ”

Suzanne Moore
February 23-24, 2008
9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Scripps College Press
Cost: $200

The roots of collage reach back centuries to Asian roots. The distinct possibilities of the process are virtually untouched in most current work. Beneath the deceptively simple appearance of the collage medium is a process that is more akin to an engrossing puzzle or strenuous visual calisthenics. The resulting pieces will be unique to the process and to the vision and aesthetic of each designer. Creating, deconstructing and generating completely new images is the process we will use to make a series of collage works.

This class will incorporate mark-making, design, and collage techniques through individual experimentation. Painting will provide the finesse when necessary, and various attachment techniques will be discussed and applied. Students will complete at least three 2-D pieces incorporating various collage techniques and design concepts.

Artists, book artists, designers and lettering artists of all stripes interested in expanding their repertoire are welcome.
