Here are some shots of the exhibition taken by Cheryle Yin-Lo.
Anna has been working hard on the website to make a new exhibition catalogue page. It is still very much in development so please bear that in mind. More images will be added over the next little while. If you have work in the show and it is not yet represented on the page and you have not yet done so, please send your images to Anna for inclusion. We intend to have a catalogue page for each of our exhibitions in the future.
State Library Victoria, in partnership with the Baldessin Press, is offering a new artist’s book residency as part of the annual fellowship program.
The Tate Adams Memorial Residency is offered to an artist to accomplish a limited edition or unique state artist’s book, using research from State Library Victoria and the studio facilities at Baldessin Press & Studio.
The Baldessin Press can supply studio access, accommodation and assistance to facilitate the book project in many ways, to the sum of $5000 over the 12-month period.
The recipient also has the opportunity to participate in an event to present their project to the Library, the public and other supporters.
Applications for the 2019–20 fellowship are now open. Fellowship applications must be received by midnight on Sunday 28 April 2019.
The creative content of applications is of primary importance. Along with clearly describing the book’s proposed content, design and appearance as a finished object, applications can include original text, typography, sketches or examples, proposed printmaking components and binding or presentation. Each application will be judged on individual merit, including the artist’s personal conception, expression and definition of book art.
Note: Applicants must include documented and dated images of their work, along with links to any websites where their work is displayed.
