The combination of papermaking and printmaking processes can produce beautiful, unusual results. We will look at some memorable editions and unique works made at the Pace Paper workshop in Brooklyn, New York, including works by contemporary artists Donald Baechler, Will Cotton, Leonardo Drew, Tomoo Gokita and Li Songsong, among others. The talk will wrap up with discussion of trends in the paper and art worlds, and projections of the future direction of both.
