[BKARTS] Eileen Wallace Lecture, 4/24/09, 6:30 pm

The Center for Book & Paper Arts proudly presents a lecture by Eileen
Wallace as part of the Marilyn Sward Visiting Artist Series.

6:30 PM 
Room 502

Eileen Wallace will present results of her research into Italian ledger
binding structures and share images of her recent work inspired
by these simple yet striking books. In addition, the lecture will include a
look at the remarkable Biccherna, or painted wooden book covers,
used on account books exclusively in Siena, Italy from the 13th to 17th
centuries. These distinctive painted books are structurally
unique and provide a rare glimpse into daily life of the time.


All the great things that exist here at the Center are due in large part to
the hard work of our founding director Marilyn Sward. Marilyn passed away
last summer, but her vision to make education a central part of the Center's
mission continues to inspire us to create exciting new programs.

This year we've inaugurated the Marilyn Sward Visiting Artist Series.
Modeled on the MFA program's popular Book as Image / Book as Structure
classes of years past, this program provides the opportunity for community
members to study with artists of national and international importance. Each
visiting artist­six of them in 2009­ will present a Friday night lecture
followed by a weekend workshop.

Please note that while lectures will be open to the public, to participate
in the workshops you must be a
member in good standing of the Center for Book & Paper Arts.
