[BKARTS] Annual New Jersey Book Arts Symposium

I am very pleased to announce The Dana Library will host the Ninth Annual
New Jersey Book Arts Symposium: *Syles of Collecting, Styles of the Book*,
on November 7, 2003. Following a brief demonstration of the Gocco Printer
by book and fabric artist, Lois Morrison, *Styles* will feature a panel
discussion on the underlying principles constituting the practice of
building artists' book collections, focusing on inclusiveness,
institutional mission, access policies, the distinctions between
collecting policies and curatorial acquisitions, and the delicate art of
selection making. Panelists are Milan Hughston, Director of the Library of
the Museum of Modern Art, Sandra Kroupa, Curator of Artists' Books,
Special Collections, University of Washington, Marvin Sackner, Collector,
co-founder of the Ruth and Marvin Sackner Archives of Concrete and Visual
Poetry, Marshall Weber, Artist and a Director of the collective, Booklyln,
and Constance Woo, panel moderator, Dean of the LIU Library, Brooklyn
Campus, and Curator of Artists' Books. Judith K. Brodsky will provide an
artist's response.

After lunch (provided), four New Jersey artists will do slide
presentations on their bookwork-- papermaking, printmaking, printing, and
the creation of artists' books. Artists in order of appearance are Robbin
Ami Silverberg (DobbinMills), Mary Olive Stone, Liz Mitchell and Gordon N.

The afternoon will conclude with our traditional Book Artists' Jam
(attendees are encouraged to bring samples of their own recent book work),
and an opening to the accompanying group exhibition, curated by Karen
Guancione.  Exhibits will be works by Gordon N. Murray, Liz Mitchell, Mary
Olive Stone, Robbin Ami Silverberg, Constance Woo, Marshall Weber, Lois
Morrison, Marcia Wilson, students in Ms Guancione's bookmaking and
printmaking classes at Rutgers-Newark, and a selection of recent
acquisitions of artists' books created by NJBAS artists from the Libraries
Special Collections and University Archives. Books within the collection
of Marvin Sackner and Marshall Weber will also be on display. The
exhibition will remain in the Dana Gallery until January 7th.
