As part of a general effort to update the Society of Marbling web site
at www.marbling.org a monthly reminder will now be sent to all of you.
Please send notices of your marbling events, such as any workshops,
lectures, or exhibitions that you may be involved in, or know are
taking place. This feature is not offered exclusively to Society
members, or only events in America. It is open to all of you. Even if
you have an exhibit in Istanbul, Vienna, or wherever, PLEASE send us
This past month I have seen announcements about marbling events, but
they weren't even posted to this Yahoo Marbling Group, but other
bookbinding lists. You can easily help yourselves by taking advantage
of these resources. It will help fill up your class, get people to
come to your lecture, or attend your exhibit opening if you remember to
tell us about it.
Compiling a common list of events is a simple way for us to promote
ourselves and the art as a whole. This feature is easily found by the
general public while searching Google. Many of you feature your events
on your own web sites. Please remember to forward them to us when you
update you own site. Also please note that these listings are not
posted automatically. They are compiled by Mary Shilman and then
forwarded to our web master Dorothy LaFara, who volunteer their time to
provide this service to you. They are usually posted by the end of the
month if not sooner. Marie Palowoda has been extremely busy but does
plan to issue a new Annual for 2006, and last week I sent out a call
for contributions for the upcoming issue, with a deadline set for the
end of May for June publication. Please send copies of drafts to both
Marie and myself jake@...
To contribute to the events listing please send it to Mary Shilman at
Items must be received by the 15th of the month to be included in our
(note: this is getting out to you a little late this month, but please
send along ASAP).
If you update your own website with such information, please remember
that we can help you promote it, and send a copy of the information
with any relevant hyperlinks.
Please remember that we volunteer our time and cannot accept poorly
edited, extremely long, or incomplete content. We ask that to save
time and for consistency that you follow the format below and these
