In this workshop we'll start by making a simple accordion (concertina) binding with attached covers. Then we'll make a sewn multi-section binding that uses a modified accordion structure as the basis. If time permits, we'll begin a third binding. You'll quickly see that once you learn the basic concertina fold, there are countless ways to modify it in order to create new book structures.

This exhibition features all new drawings. In the past year Stella has renewed her exploration of color relationships and color saturation, a departure from her last exhibition. These drawings on panels move gently onto new planes.
The constant in her work is the role of process and materials. Methodical, repetitious, and meditative marks are the vocabulary of measurement and probing.

Inspired by Broad’s recent artist residency in Iceland, Greater Than Less Than represents a dynamic collaboration with the extremes of nature – ice, wind, and fire – and Iceland’s inhabitants’ strength of spirit. To parallel nature’s impact on the work, concepts are revealed with bold graphic forms. Some pigments were ground from lava rock and other Icelandic minerals. Colors are primary and contrasting.
