CBAS Member has NY Show

Our own Diane Stemper (Oxford, Ohio) is on her way to New York City this week to help install an exhibit of her work as a Featured Artist at The Center for Book Arts. Titled Diane Stemper—Sample Close at Hand, the exhibit opens April 18 and runs through June 28.
Diane Stemper's Universal Sample, intaglio & letterpress
Artist Statement: The works in "Sample Close at Hand" reference Charles Darwin, medical collections and biological studies, codified in a series of prints and artist books and books built into petri dishes. The dish references a culture of microorganisms and serves as a metaphor for the cultural context of science qnd the connection between our relationship with nature and science.
Diane Stemper's Cell: Compendium, books in petri dishes

So...if you're headed to NYC in the next couple of months, be sure to drop in and take a look. The Center for Book Arts is located at 28 W. 27th Street, 3rd floor. And send us some photos of the installation! Congratulations to Diane for an exhibit at this prestigious location.
