[BKARTS] The Sonoran Collective in Tucson

A View from an Outsider

Recently I had the opportunity and pleasure to give a lecture and a workshop for The Sonoran
Collective for Book and Paper Arts in Tuscon, Arizona. As I give many of these, I think I have
some perspective on various groups. If this organization is any indication of where the book
and paper arts is going we're all in for an exciting and rapid period of growth. I was immensely
impressed with the individuals who are part of this, in regards to their creative talents and especially,
their support and encouragement of one another.This is all the more surprising because of
the eclectic nature of each person's background.The group encompasses diverse processes
and styles. It is interesting that artists are coming from such varied disciplines as weavers,
painters, sculptors, printmakers, surface designers, mathematicians, scientists etc,.

Aside from bringing in people like me they have regular small Salons and In-Over-My-Head-Groups
where the key word is sharing. They also publish a Quarterly Journal with tip ins. Paper Arts people
wishing to start their own group might consider taking a page from their book or moving to Tucson.
