PULP: The Paper Medium

This event is expired.

ArtPoint and the Museum of Craft and Design invite you to explore your creativity.

Join us on Thursday, May 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. for presentations by San Francisco–based artists working in the medium of paper and by the San Francisco Center for the Book.

Following the presentations, you will be invited to create your own paper artwork and wearable paper couture: craft a tissue flower corsage, fashion a chic paper bag hat, fold and style origami bow ties and bracelets, assemble a paper sculpture, or make a hand-bound journal—let your imagination soar! Snacks, wine, beer, and art supplies will be provided.

Inspired by Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave—on view through June 5, 2011 at the Legion of Honor—ArtPoint and the Museum of Craft and Design have assembled an amazing group of contributors who will discuss their concepts, processes, and creations.

Julia Goodman is a San Francisco–based paper sculpture artist. Julia earned her BA in International Relations and Peace and Justice Studies at Tufts University in 2001. She began making paper in her backyard in 2003 and completed her MFA at the California College of the Arts in 2009. Since graduating she has spent time at the J.B. Blunk Residency in Inverness, California, and completed a studio internship at the Dieu Donné papermaking studio in New York.

Claire Jackel is a San Francisco–based artist working in painting and sculpture. In 2009 she received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute.

Her work has been exhibited in Denver, in Los Angeles, and throughout the Bay Area.

The San Francisco Center for the Book is the premier book arts center on the West Coast. It is a place to learn about the many arts and crafts of the book. Through workshops, exhibitions, and public events, the SFCB promotes knowledge of both traditional book arts and experimental book forms.
