SCAP is honored to announce Bea Nettles, a pioneer in photographic techniques and book arts, as our first visiting artist of Spring 2011. Nettles’ work examines issues of family relationships, woven together with mythology and natural history in a dream-like nature. Bea will be working on a collaborative book with Florida artists Robert Fichter and Denise Bookwalter during March 14-18. This interactive letterpress book, entitledOranges, will celebrate Florida’s own through each artist’s unique vision.
Nettles will be giving an artist talk on March 16, 2011 at 4:00pm in the Strozier Library Scholars Commons at FSU. We also invite you to meet Bea, experience this project first hand, and learn more about the press at our open house on March 18, 2011 from 10:00am-12:00pm at SCAP.
