Northeast Life Size Book Project

In the Winter of 2013, ArtShare, Northeast’s premier community arts group, is partnering with the Northeast Library to bring you the “Northeast Life Size Book” project. ArtShare and the Northeast Library will host four collaborative workshops with the guidance of award-winning book artisans Laura Brown and Bridget O'Malley to create a twelve page, oversized (17x23 in.) art book about life in Northeast that will be permanently housed in the Northeast Library. These collaborative workshops are free for all neighbors in the Northeast Community.

In the workshops, participants will gain hands-on experience with the book-making process. The first of these workshops is a fun-filled brain-storming and sketching session in which community members will work together with Laura and Bridget to arrive at the content of the “Northeast Life Size Book.” In the following workshops we will experience papermaking, printmaking, and bookbinding while we follow the production of the “Northeast Life Size Book” happening in the studios of Bridget O’Malley and Laura Brown via weekly updates.

A New Year, New Projects!

We're very excited about our upcoming collaborative project! We have partnered with Hennepin County Library's Northeast Library to create the Northeast Life Size Book project. We will be hosting a series of four workshops in September in which a local book/paper artist will facilitate creation of the content and artwork of a large format, handmade book.

As usual, ArtShare will be assuring that the workshops are free, fun, and open for everyone in the NE community. We do incur costs in our work so we will be hosting a Fundraiser on Sunday, June 24th at Grumpy's NE. There will be live music, loads of good food (and beer), and a silent auction with some great, local prizes. We will post a list of the bands and other details in the near future.

On a sadder note, we are joining many others in mourning the recent loss of Tom Taylor - neighborhood activist, NE fixture, cook, mushroom forager, father, long-time supporter of ArtShare, and so very much more. Raise less corn and more hell!
