Sarah Chamberlain exhibition

cc: Letpress; exlibris

The books, broadsides, prints, ephemera, and archives of book artist
Sarah Chamberlain will be on exhibit in the Multnomah County Library's
Collins Gallery from January 6-February 27, 2001.

The exhibition's opening will be on Tuesday, January 9th at 6pm.

Sarah Chamberlain, known for her wonderful wood engravings and linoleum
cuts of tales by Aesop, Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen and others, was
taught by Leonard Baskin and Barry Moser when she resided in western

She operated Chamberlain Press from 1975 until 1987.  Her work has graced
the cover of _Fine Press_, and her books reviewed within the journal.  A
resident of Portland, Oregon, since the early 1980s, Ms. Chamberlain's
engraved work has been an integral part to such diverse works as a
broadside of poems by Charles Simic and the 1987 "Year of the Reader"
poster for the Library of Congress.

The exhibition is drawn primarily from a recent major acquisition of the
Library's John Wilson Room, which has the largest collection of Sarah
Chamberlain's work in North America.  Additional materials in the
exhibition will come from the artist's personal collection, including
original art, book dummies, correspondence, and objects related to her
trade publications of children's books, as well as books from other fine
presses containing prints by Ms. Chamberlain.
