Exhibit: Women's Studio Workshop

Artist Books from Women Artists

Posted 03.08.16 by Allison Fischbach

The items on display this week are created by artists as part of the Women's Studio Workshop. Based in Rosendale, NY, the Workshop encourages the voice and vision of individual women artists, provides professional opportunities for artists at various stages of their careers, and promotes programs designed to stimulate public involvement, awareness, and support for the visual arts.

WSW maintains facilities for etching, letterpress, papermaking, book arts, silkscreen, 3D work, ceramics, and photography. They also have a long history of producing artist books. With over 200 limited edition books they are the largest producer in North America.

Tatana Kellner and Ann Kalmbach, founders of Women's Studio Workshop, will be giving a lecture on Thursday, March 10 at 6 p.m. in the Lazarus Center.

They have spent 41 years creating incredible workshops taught by artists from around the world, and over the years several MICA students have done internships there.

We hope you enjoy the look into the Decker Library's collection from WSW, and we hope to see you at the lecture. For more information about WSW, visit www.wsworkshop.org.
