Printmaker, letterpress printer, and book artist Sarah Bryant will offer a presentation on her work and her reasons for choosing the book as her main art medium as part of this year's Ettinger Book Artist Series on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at 7 p.m. in Special Collections, located on the fourth floor of the UWM Golda Meir Library.
Currently residing in the United Kingdom, Sarah Bryant is proprietor of Big Jump Press (http://bigjumppress.com/home.html) and is an MFA graduate of Book Arts Program at the University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa. Her most recent artist’s book Biography won the 2011 MCBA Prize and the 2010 Award for Artistic Excellence at Pyramid Atlantic.
Bryant's prints and books are highly conceptual, and her work is noted for its crisp design, vibrant pastel colors, and complexity of form. Her books reflect her primary interests in the physical realities of our environment and our emotional relationship to that environment.
This is the eighth year the Ettinger Family Foundation has supported the Book Arts Series.
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, call 414-229-4345.
