Printmaker, letterpress printer, and book artist Sarah Bryant offered a presentation on her work and her reasons for choosing the book as her main art medium as part of the 2012 Ettinger Book Artist Series on November 13, 2012 in the UWM Libraries' Special Collections Reading Room.
Currently residing in the United Kingdom, Sarah Bryant is proprietor of Big Jump Press (http://bigjumppress.com/home.html) and is an MFA graduate of Book Arts Program at the University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa. Her most recent artist’s book Biography won the 2011 MCBA Prize and the 2010 Award for Artistic Excellence at Pyramid Atlantic.
Bryant's prints and books are highly conceptual, and her work is noted for its crisp design, vibrant pastel colors, and complexity of form. Her books reflect her primary interests in the physical realities of our environment and our emotional relationship to that environment.
This was the eighth year the Ettinger Family Foundation has supported the Book Arts Series.
