      June 28, Thursday, 7:00
      Lecture: Purposeful Chance in Contemporary Artistsâ•˙ Books (Thank You, John Cage!)
      Location: Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah, Salt Lake City
      The lecture is FREE and open to the public.

      Robin Price delivers an illustrated lecture exploring the use of chance in artists' booksâ•"in concept and/or executionâ•"and examines earlier twentieth century precedents, particularly the print and book work of John Cage. Price discusses some of her own work involving the purposeful use of chance and randomness. Lecture attendees have the opportunity to view and handle several bookworks featured in Priceâ•˙s talk, courtesy of the J. Willard Marriott Libraryâ•˙s Special and Fine Arts Collections.

      June 27â•"30, Wednesdayâ•"Saturday, 9:00â•"5:00
      Intensive Workshop: Guided by Chance Operations in Letterpress Artistsâ•˙ Books
      Instructor: Robin Price
      Location: Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah, Salt Lake City
      Workshop fee: $320 plus materials fee

      Charting the course for chance, Robin Price, workshop muses, and the goddess Fortuna compel participants to generate fresh content for artistsâ•˙ books. A readiness to embrace surprise, relinquish control, work within imposed constraints, and respond creatively to othersâ•˙ work is the best preparation for this venture. Participants work collaboratively and solo, mixing ink, choice, and chance in (mostly) structured ways. An initial exercise results in a packet of letterpress-printed postcards. Then, with Chance at the helm, each participant completes a set of editioned sheets for a simple binding. Encounter tips on handset type composition and letterpress printing at ports along the voyage, along with brief demonstrations of heat-set collage, paper staining, and experimental printmaking techniques. Decisive navigation in a frequently changing field of potential and constraint directs the quest toward a serendipitous application of printed imagery, textual excerpts, and various hand applications.

      Robin Price is an artist, letterpress printer, and publisher whose work spans the fine press/artistsâ•˙ books categories. The work of the pressâ•"under the umbrella of Robin Price, Publisher (formerly Lavender Armadillo Press)â•"has become a lifelong, interdisciplinary, liberal arts education, and her books are collected and exhibited internationally. ╲A chameleon among book artists╡ (Connell Gallagher, 2004), Price seeks out contemporary artists, writers, and artisans with whom to collaborate, striving for synergistic books, diverse in content and form. A wellspring of inspiration is the purposeful use of chance in creative work, especially as defined by John Cage; she has been lecturing and teaching specifically on that subject since 2002, when she co-curated an exhibition at Yale University Sterling Library, ╲By Chance: Serendipity and Randomness in Contemporary Artistsâ•˙ Books.╡ The 25-year anniversary of her press was celebrated in 2010 with a traveling exhibition that originated at Wesleyan University Davison Art Center. Price holds a B.A. from Pomona College.

        Hi, Robin,
        No problem, I stated the truth, love the books I've seen.  I saw this a while back and the thought was there that I wish Utah was a bit closer, but alas, it is not "around the corner"  ;o)).
        Hope you have a successful workshop, and enjoy the trip!  I look forward to "seeing" the show in the catalogue.
        Best to you and keije.
