CALL FOR ARTISTS – PRESS RELEASE from Tunde Toth – Artist - Kozo Studio and Gallery
As a Paper and Fibre Artist I have recently travelled to Tasmania for the 20th IAPMA Congress (International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists). I have been invited both to present workshops and exhibit my art work at the Congress and the “New Paper – Old Land” international paper art exhibition.
I'm in the process of establishing the Irish Network/Guild of Paper Artists and Papermakers - a network that assists and promotes artists, makers and raises awareness and appreciation for an ancient art form and related contemporary practice. This network has a lot of potential: promoting member's practice through the network's own website, blogs, organizing exhibitions and educational programmes (workshops, talks, demonstrations, inviting artists of international repute...etc.) and benefiting from international networking opportunities.
I would like to hear from artists and makers – paper and fibre artists, hand papermakers, crafts people and visual artists working with handmade paper in their practice in various contexts - who are interested in taking part in this project.
