[BKARTS] Show: Jerome VIII Fellows at MCBA


VIII Jerome Book Arts Fellowship

MCBA Star Tribune Foundation Gallery

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 13, 6 to 9 p.m

Since 1985, the Jerome Foundation has provided major support for MCBA's
fellowship program designed to support emerging book artists in the
creation of new work. For the eighth round of Book Arts Fellowships,
proposals from six artists were selected by a jury panel in early 2003.
This November, the fellows' bookworks will be on display in MCBA's

The fellowship recipients include:

Jennifer Amie and Jeffrey Morrison: Suitcase Farming: Travels in Three
Volumes, a series chronicling evolution of the family
 farm from "suitcase farming" through corporate agribusiness and
contemplation of the ideal.

Kari Finkler: a series of letterpress printed chapbooks, each addressing
visual/conceptual association that gives voice to an
 abstract idea, accompanied by a web diary.

Laura Migliorino: My Grandmother/Myself, comparing and contrasting
experiences of the artist and her grandmother, who
 emigrated from Italy in the1920s, through eight handmade books
interviews, photographs and ephemera.

Bill Moran: a fictional nineteenth-century scientific field journal
exploring the graphic aspect of letterforms, depicting hybrid insects
derived from letterpress-printed collages of wood and metal type.

 Heather O'Hara: The Handbook of Practical Geographies, offering a
line of educational materials designed to engage
students of all ages and abilities with timely lessons in political and
cultural understanding.
