[BKARTS] Mary Heebner at the Beverly Hills Library this Thursday

The Los Angeles  Book Arts Center and the Beverly Hills Public Library invite
you to a talk by  Mary Heebner.  Heebner will be  bringing book prototypes of
works-in-progress as well as completed books.  She will be showing slides and
will talk  about the transition from fine press to commercial book, and from
commercial  book to fine press, using two examples: On the Blue Shore of
Silence: Poems of  the Sea by Pablo Neruda (bilingual Harper Collins/Rayo) and
Western Horizon  (Abrams 2000) .
This free lecture  will take place on October 14, 2004, at the Beverly Hills
Public Library, which  is located at 444 North Rexford Dr. in Beverly Hills.
The talk will begin promptly at 7:00  PM.  There is free parking in the
Beverly Hills Library parking lot.
Mary Heebner is  an accomplished artist whose artist books, collages and
paintings reflect her  exploration of physical places and the images they inspire.
 Heebner's books, under the  imprint
simplemente maria  press, synthesize the writing and sketches she makes while
traveling with her  studio work, including her large scale paintings and
collages. She sees this as  one multi-faceted process.  Heebner  has written
travel articles for several magazines including Conde Nast Traveler,  Travel + Life
and National Geographic Traveler.  Her work is in numerous private and
public  collections, including SFMoMA, the UCLA Department of Special
Collections and  the National Gallery of Art.  Please  visit her website at
