Artist Talk: Book Arts with Mary Ann Sampson

virtual artist talk: book arts with Mary Ann Sampson and Holland Hopson

I’m pleased to participate in an online artist tomorrow talk highlighting the book artist Mary Ann Sampson. I met Mary Ann and saw her work at her current exhibit at the Wiregrass Museum of Art. Her artwork is inventive, playful, improvisatory, and full of characters as well as character (also it’s often on gorgeous paper…) She’s a delight to visit with, too, so this conversation promises to be plenty of fun.

The event is free. Registration is required.

Here’s more about Mary Ann from the Wiregrass announcement: “Masters in Book Arts from the University of Alabama. Is an active member of the Guild of Book Workers. Founder of the One-Eye Opera Company – which publishes limited edition letterpress books, custom bookbinding and unique editions.”

“Handmade books are a personal stage and a memory stick for a life lived…a field for random thoughts and imagination. Flat works and three dimensional pieces are mostly singular ideas that have fallen off the pages. It’s the plurality of techniques and materials that make them seem different.”
