your Ebrupa connection reports :
though stale news !!
1-7 March Ebru exhibition
From the local to the universal
of Osman Simsek
organized by the Municipality of Istanbul.
The State Office for religion affairs is going to publish his art
His daughters manage the web site,
as Mr.osman is not cyber communicative.
He said he is presently doing
textile marbling in a tray of 3m lenghth
at his tranquil place by the Lake Manyas near ancient Nicea.
This Sunday esteemed Fuad Baser was also visited,
he gave the good news abouyt marbling
which I believe ,
elder brother Feridun should announce
when the time is ripe.
We still could not resurrect !?
INK and GALL yet ;
but individual efforts of scholars and academicians
keep the marbling spirit alive
in form of books of their artwork.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality has published
3-4 books on marbling by marblers.
