Committed to developing an alternative space for artists to create new work and share skills, Ann Kalmbach, Tatana Kellner, Anita Wetzel, and Barbara Leoff Burge founded the Women's Studio Workshop in 1974. Programs were centered on the artistic process and often informed by feminist values. WSW maintains facilities for etching, letterpress, papermaking, book arts, silkscreen, 3D work, ceramics, and photography. Studios are housed in an historic building, located in the foothills of the Hudson Valley's Shawangunk Mountains and are extensively equipped and well-maintained. Artists can take workshops, rent the studios, schedule private instruction, or apply for artist residencies. Campus LocationsMarriott Library - J. Willard (M LIB)

Glimpse - 2016 Book Arts Instructor...

Ongoing through Friday, January 29, 2016

"Glimpse" is an exhibition featuring artists' books and fine press books created by instructors who will teach in the 2016 Book Arts Program. The covers of a book enclose worlds constructed of text and image. To open a book is to expose the intimate details of story, experience and idea. Part of the J. Willard Marriott Library since 1995, the Book Arts Program champions wide-ranging explorations of the book. In our fully equipped studio, bookbinders, printers, and book artists utilize type, letterpress, photo engravings and bookbinding equipment as they combine traditional techniques with modern aesthetics and technology.
