Variations on the Simple Accordion Binding with Rebecca Gilbert

Workshop
Saturday, May 19, 2018

In this workshop we'll start by making a simple accordion (concertina) binding with attached covers. Then we'll make a sewn multi-section binding that uses a modified accordion structure as the basis. If time permits, we'll begin a third binding. You'll quickly see that once you learn the basic concertina fold, there are countless ways to modify it in order to create new book structures.

Artist Reception
March 10 / 1:30 - 4 PM

 

This exhibition features all new drawings. In the past year Stella has renewed her exploration of color relationships and color saturation, a departure from her last exhibition. These drawings on panels move gently onto new planes.

The constant in her work is the role of process and materials. Methodical, repetitious, and meditative marks are the vocabulary of measurement and probing.

Naked Abandon : Self-Portraits a magazine by Sarah Bloom

Naked Abandon : Self-Portraits a magazine by Sarah Bloom
publication
Sarah Bloom has been taking self-portraits as her primary form of artistic expression since 2006. The exploration of identity as a woman entering middle age has emerged as a persistent theme in her work, most expressively with her self-portraits in abandoned places. Akin to the stages of grief, she faces the idea of aging at first with dread, then resistance, and ultimately acceptance. In her experience, these stages are non-linear.
 
Sarah R. Bloom is an artist and photographer working in the Philadelphia region.

Inspired by Broad’s recent artist residency in Iceland, Greater Than Less Than represents a dynamic collaboration with the extremes of nature – ice, wind, and fire – and Iceland’s inhabitants’ strength of spirit. To parallel nature’s impact on the work, concepts are revealed with bold graphic forms. Some pigments were ground from lava rock and other Icelandic minerals. Colors are primary and contrasting.
