FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 6-9 PM
Author's Night at Zorvino Vineyards, Sandown, NH
This is the third year of the event but the first for me. Sounds like fun.
Book Play: Simple Bookmaking with Recycled Materials, workshop at Newburyport Public Library, Nbpt, MA
Join us for an evening of hands-on fun and creativity. We'll make simple books from one sheet of paper and then play. The books can be shaped like hearts for valentines, ornamented with beads and ribbon for hanging, or glued together to form accordions. Everyone will leave with a small treasure or two and the ability to continue making books at home. No art experience or creative confidence is needed; this workshop is truly for everyone.
Pecha Kucha Portsmouth, 3S Artspace, Portsmouth, NH
Pecha Kucha are fascinating events featuring 10 speakers per evening. Each person shows 20 slides and can only talk for 20 seconds about each. It's fast-paced and fun. This will be my third. The theme is Here Today, Gone Tomorrow and I'll be talking about exhibiting at Outdoor Sculpture at Maudslay.
Art Lessons: Reflections From An Artist's Life, illustrated talk at Chelmsford Public Library, Chelmsford, MA
This is part of the CPL One Book Program. They are reading The Art Forger by B. A. Shapiro (excellent) and my talk is one of the special programming events related to it.
Gardens of Paris, illustrated talk for Newburyport Horticultural Society, Newburyport Public Library, Nbpt, MA
Newburyport artist Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord takes you on a visual journey through the gardens of Paris from the well-known Jardin du Luxembourg to small pocket parks and gardens, from the past—the medieval garden at the Cluny Museum—to the present—the Promenade Plantée created on a raised rail line in 1993. You'll see the beauty of the gardens and learn a little history along the way.
And this summer, I will be teaching at the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill—June 30 and July 1: Book Play-Simple Bookmaking with Recycled Materials and July 2-3: Spirit Book Workshop. More to follow.
As always, should you know of any place that might be interested in either of my talks or in a bookmaking workshop for adults (including book clubs and women's groups), please let me know.
