First, sorry about that Halloween-themed message from yesterday — we’re adjusting to some newness in our emailing program and it’s been a bit of a bumpy transition. Lessons are being learned and we appreciate your patience.
TYPOLOGY presents Elemental | Book Works by Cathryn Miller
As we head into late fall, the chill in the air and the leaves underfoot put us in mind of the seasons and the stars, elemental concepts evoking cycles, rituals, and deeply held wishes. Not coincidentally, such themes form the conceptual threads weaving much of Saskatchewan artist Cathryn Miller’s work together, and so it is with a sense of both celebratory anticipation and seasonal cheer that we announce our next exhibition.
Every sense of the word: Postscript at the Power Plant
Closing after this long weekend is the Power Plant’s sprawling summer exhibition, Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art. Curated by Andrea Andersson and Nora Burnett Abrams, this multi-sensory feast for the eyes, ears, and mind is a testament to the variety and richness of artistic and poetic approaches to language undertaken by conceptual artists and writers since the 1960s.
WTF is a Wayzgoose? (and WNYBAC, for that matter?)
This weekend, get thee to Grimbsy for their 34th annual Wayzgoose, a festive fair and celebration of all things book arts-related. While the origin of the word wayzgoose is still up for speculation, there is no doubt that this tradition of annual printers’ parties dates back to at least the late 1600s, when Joseph Moxon, author of Mechanick Exercises (1683-1684), wrote: “It is customary for the Journey-men every year to make new paper windows…because that day they make them the Master Printer gives them a Way-goose, that is, he makes them a good Feast, and not only entertains them at his own house, but besides, gives them Money to spend at the Ale-house or Tavern at Night.” Nice.
