Woodland Pattern Book Center is happy to present Women of the Archives, a series of readings, workshops, and exhibitions celebrating women who have made a significant contribution to our history.


Join us to celebrate the opening of this career-spanning exhibition of artists’ books, photographs, and ephemera by artist and writer Susan E. King.

 

The reception will begin at 6 pm, and Susan King will give a gallery talk - What Kentucky Taught Me: a native daughter’s book odyssey - starting at 7 pm. 

 

This exhibition will be on view through Sunday, October 18. 

 

Susan E. King is a Kentucky native who spent many years in California at the Woman’s Building and Women’s Graphic Center. She started Paradise Press, and publishes her artist’s books under that imprint. Her work, known for its wedding of form and content, is in major collections such as the Museum of Modern Art Library, the Victoria and Albert Museum Library, and the Getty Research Library. She was the first recipient of A Room of Her Own Foundation’s artist in residence grant and was recently a Little/Gaines Artist at the University Kentucky Fine Arts Library.

 

Running concurrently with Accordion Publications from the collection of Stephen Perkins - opening Saturday, September 19 and running through Sunday, October 18. 

 


We are pleased to welcome our new neighbors The Suburban gallery. Opening on Saturday, September 19
