Description

Paperworks: The Human Touch

an exhibition of works by the Western Reserve Calligraphers

SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio—8 August 2012—In conjunction with Octavofest, a celebration of the book and paper arts, and Watermarks 2012, Notre Dame College’s (NDC’s) Clara Fritzsche Library will host “Paperworks: The Human Touch,” a showing of works by the Western Reserve Calligraphers. An opening reception will be held in the library and take place on Thursday, September 27th from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public and will run from September 27 through October 31, 2012.

The Western Reserve Calligraphers are pleased to add their voices to Octavofest with an exhibition of calligraphy art pieces, books, boxes and paper sculptures. Among the exhibitors will be WRC former president, co-founder and advisor Myrlin von Glahn; WRC president, frequent NDC library exhibitor and naturalist Barb Morgan; paper design innovator Rebecca Eliason; and internationally known calligrapher Mike Gold, a frequent contributor to Letter Arts Review and senior designer and lettering artist at American Greetings. All have previously exhibited in Notre Dame College’s Performing Arts Center.

Founded in 1977 as the Western Reserve Calligraphers Guild, the group is based in Bay Village, Ohio and consists of about 80 lettering artists. The purpose of the WRC is to educate its members about the historical foundation and contemporary approaches to beautiful lettering. In this age of computer-generated art and high-tech media, the organization strives to preserve the art of hand lettering and bookmaking. Anyone interested in calligraphy and letterforms is invited to join the group. For more information, go to the organization’s website at neohiocalligraphy.org

Initiated in 2009, Octavofest (which takes its name from a traditional bookmaking format) celebrates the love of books and paper arts through diverse programs and events during the month of October, including exhibits, lectures, workshops and classes on bookbinding, papermaking, printmaking, rare book collections and collecting and other activities honoring the printed book. Over two dozen libraries, museums, galleries, arts organizations, societies and small businesses from Northeast Ohio will collaborate to bring an even greater variety of programming this year. For more information, go to the Octavofest website at www.octavofest.com.

On October 17th members of the International Association of Hand Papermaking and Paper Artists (IAPMA) and Friends of Dard Hunter, an organization of hand papermakers, will join together in Cleveland for Watermarks 2012, a five-day conference that will include an array of papermaking workshops and demonstrations, lectures, exhibitions and museum tours. The Clara Fritzsche Library Gallery was one of a select group of venues chosen to be part of Watermarks 2012 by its host, the Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory and Educational Foundation, a non-profit art center dedicated to the preservation of hand papermaking and the art of the book, and one of Octavofest’s founding members. The Clara Fritzsche Library is honored that “Paperworks: The Human Touch” will be part of the conference’s exhibition schedule.

The exhibit may be viewed during library hours: Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Sunday 1-10 p.m.
