Friday, Saturday and Sunday: I’ll be at the Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair in Silver Spring, MD. I used to intern/volunteer as the letterpress assistant at this great print/papermaking/book arts center. While a lot has changed since I was there, it’s still a wonderful place to learn and make art! They are offering expanded ways for the community to get involved, like workshops, Free Fun nights, and a store selling artwork from many many great artists.
From the press release: The 11th Biennial Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair and Conference presents an exciting weekend of events which will examine the evolution of the book as art and the latest innovations and interpretations of this versatile form. For the first time, this year’s Book Arts Fair will also include a contemporary print component, which will examine the print form as an independent medium as well as its relationship to the book.
The fair features a full weekend of a showcase and events: contemporary print and book art exhibitors, specialty marketplace, curated exhibition, notable speakers, demonstrations, short films, after-hours receptions, all in Silver Spring’s brand new, modern civic building.
