PaperWorkers Local Comes to Central Library
An exhibition of work by PaperWorkers Local (PWL) members will be on display at the Central Library beginning March 7 through April 30, 2015. PWL is a non-profit artist cooperative with an emphasis on printmaking but including other work created with, or on, paper. The free exhibition, Source/Process: Work by Members of PaperWorkers Local, will hang in the Central Library’s Fourth Floor Gallery. An opening reception is planned for Saturday, March 7, from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m., in the East Building’s Boardroom.
Founded in June 2013, the goals of PWL are to provide workspace with access to presses, offer workshops to artists and the public, and to exhibit work that promotes dialogue and a deeper understanding of prints and other works on paper. Their space in the Forest Park area doubles as a studio and exhibition venue.
“The purpose of this exhibition is not only to show the work our members make, but also to give a glimpse of what goes into a print in order to make the image. To this end we have put together a collection of prints that also includes source and process materials that were used to create the final print,” according to PWL. Members of PWL include: Mimi Boston, John DeMotte, Jill England, Joanne Fogle, Tanisha Hicks, Roger Jones, Sarah Marshall, Linda McDavid Merry, Michael Merry, D’Arcie Schmidt, Lacy Stewart, Richard Stockham, Joi West, and Cathy Wright.
Two workshops will be offered at the PWL studio in conjunction with the library’s exhibition. Registration is required. Register by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit paperworkerslocal.blogspot.com for information and workshop times.
