We know how difficult it is to have a meaningful dialogue during an exhibition’s opening so we hosted a gallery talk for Word Up: artists using language, to discuss the work in the exhibition.
John Risseeuw and Dan Mayer, educators and artists from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at ASU led the conversation. John and Dan talked about the history of the Fine Printing and Book Arts Program at ASU and also shared a lot of interesting historical references to the art of fine printing.
There were several other exhibiting artists in attendance, including Karla Elling from Mummy Mountain Press, Linda Smith from Picnic Press and current student, Rosalind Shipley along with ASU alumni, Peter Bugg. For more photos of this exhibition visit our facebook page.
