Artists' Books 2002 is an exhibit at Cuesta College Art Gallery in
SLO from June 10-July 7. The opening reception is Friday, June 14,
from 6-8 pm. The announcement doesn't give any details - artists,
types of books, etc., so if anyone goes to the show, please let the
rest of us know about it!
I'm headed to San Francisco tomorrow for one graduation - and three
book arts exhibits! I hope to check out "A Typographic Discourse:
Women and the Book Arts in California 1930-2000" at USF, "Best of the
Best" (Guild of Book Workers' traveling show) at the SF Public
Library and "The Artists' Book" at SF Center for the Book. If anyone
is interested in knowing about any of them, I'll be happy to tell you
what I've seen when I get back.
- Hi you all: can anybody please remind me of the name of that book artist in
New Mexico, about whom we've talked several times in our saturday meetings?
One of us took a workshop recently with her, and somebody also brought an
exhibit catalog of hers for show and tell. I am drawing a blank at the
Thanks a lot,
Tell us ALL about ALL the SF trip. Sounds like great fun!

- On Friday, I went to Cuesta College (between San Luis Obispo and
Morro Bay on Hwy 1) to see their annual book arts exhibit and I want
to encourage anyone who's traveling that way this week to check it
out. It's in the art gallery and will be open July 3-7 (including
July 4) from 11 am-4 pm. The show contains a real variety of work
and the quality varies, but what's wonderful is that it's a "hands
on" show and you can put on a pair of cotton gloves and examine every
piece. There are some very creative ideas as well as some very
simple ones, with everything from boxes to Xeroxed zines to one of
Mary Heebner's gorgeous letterpress printed and painted trilogies.
Unfortunately, there is no catalog or listing to take away, but there
is a price list and a compilation of bios/background sheets from many
of the artists that you can look at while there.
Also, SO CALled Books, the exhibit of books by So. Calif. artists
which Gloria Helfgott curated for the SFCB several years ago, is
opening at UCLA's Research Library later this month. There is a
lecture or symposium on July 18 and an opening reception on July 19.
Both are by invitation, but they are willing to send invitations to
members of our group who are interested in attending. I'm working on
getting the details (exact times, who's participating, etc.) and will
pass that info along as soon as I have it. However, if you think you
might want to go to LA for one or both events, please let me know
(and give me your mailing address) and I'll forward it to the
