Remembering Alice

We were all saddened to learn of the recent passing of book artist and CBAS member Alice Heyn Balterman. A treasure to the book arts community and a formidable creative presence in our city and beyond, she will be missed.

We remember fondly our visit to Alice's amazing home studio in the spring of 2007. She was always so generous with her time and talents.

from the Enquirer, August 17, 2014:
Alice, nee Heyn, age 94, passed away Aug. 15, 2014, local artist of renown, beloved wife of the late Dexter L. Balterman, devoted mother of Marie, Andrew & Megan (Guy Cameron) Balterman, dear sister of the late Dr. Louis Heyn. Graveside services Tuesday, August 19, 11:00 A.M. at United Jewish Cemetery in Walnut Hills, 3400 Montgomery Rd., Cinti, OH 45207. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to Friends of the Public Library or the charity of one's choice would be appreciated.

Here is a link to an Aeqai article about the exhibition last year at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County that honored Alice and her work: http://aeqai.com/main/2013/06/keith-kuhn-memorial-exhibit-alice-heyn-balterman-the-public-library-of-cincinnati-and-hamilton-county/
