UPCOMING EXHIBITS AT THE DEPOT
THE INTENSIVE SPIRIT April 29 -- June 19 The Intensive Spirit: Celebrating 22 Years of the Paper and Book Intensive, an international juried exhibition of book arts and handmade paper constructions.
The Intensive Spirit will be judged by Laura Wait, a book artist who works in the intertwined fields of bookbinding, printing and painting, creating unique and limited edition books. She studied bookbinding and printmaking in London from 1977-1981, and operated a bookbinding, and conservation studio in Denver from 1981-2003. She has exhibited internationally, and her books are included in the collections of the Library of Congress, the universities of Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Utah, Connecticut, Regis, and Colorado, as well as in private collections. Last year Laura moved to Steamboat Springs and devotes her time exclusively to the creation of artist books, printmaking and painting.
The Paper & Book Intensive is a working sabbatical for practitioners and serious students in the book arts, papermaking, and conservation. PBI 2005 will be held at Lowell Whiteman School in Strawberry Park, June 6-17. For more information about PBI visit www.paperbookintensive.org. PBI co-hosts for PBI 2005 are Patricia Branstead and Beth Banning.
