Charles Ritchie, Monday at noon, BBOX

Call for Entries,Lectures — printmaking @ 11:21 am, Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

Monday, November 10, noon
BBOX, The Gateway, 1601 Mount Royal Avenue

Since 1977, Charles Ritchie has recorded images and notes in a series of sketchbook/journals that now number 131 books. These volumes have become both settings for intimate watercolor studies improvised from subjects in and around his home, and dream repositories written in a pen and ink note hand that only the artist can fully decipher. The sketches and texts inform a broad program of small-size drawings created serially and independent of the books. In addition, Ritchie’s drawings and journals are the sources for his intaglio prints that engage the techniques and materials of printmaking to reinvent his images. The artist’s lecture at MICA will be based loosely around 30 years of work seen concurrently in his solo exhibition, From the Inside Looking Out, which will be on view at Gallery Joe in Philadelphia from November 1 through December 20. 

In honor of his visit we are having a 2-hour show of student sketchbooks.
Bring your sketchbooks/journals directly to the talk at the BBOX. We will have tables set up in the BBOX for the books. It’s a great chance to see the variety of journals students keep. After Charles Ritchie speaks about his own work – there will be a discussion surrounding the student books.

The finalists’ entries will be judged and, as space permits, exhibited at the CBAA bi-annual conference, January 10–11, 2009 at the Center for the Book at the University of Iowa. Download application here.

The first biennial conference of the College Book Art Association seeks to bridge the worlds of book art, book history, cultural criticism, and curatorial work through appreciation of the book as an aesthetic sensorium. Scholarship, artistic practice, and the digital age have evoked for us the multimedia nature of the book experience. At a time when the book arts have never been more vital, ART, FACT, AND ARTIFACT builds from these energies and will offer presentations, papers, studio demonstrations, and exhibits from artists and scholars interested in the future, present, and past of the book as an expressive form.
