American Craft Council Library Salon Series: Situated Somewhere In-Between: Paper Works by Mary Hark
Mary Hark will share her work as a production papermaker, artist and educator. As a papermaker for 30 years, and a University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty member, Hark works with book designers and artists to develop particular papers. With her Frogtown neighbors in St. Paul, she makes high quality paper from urban bio-waste for art projects; with naturalists and design students, she makes papers from local plants found on a restored prairie in rural Madison, Wisconsin; and with Ghanaian colleagues in Kumasi, Ghana, she works to establish a small paper mill for art, design and small industry. Through working in these diverse environments and using the transformative nature of handmade paper, Hark has built a creative life grounded in making and community-building. This event is free and open to the public. The Library Salon Series is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. ACC thanks their sponsors: Minnesota State Arts Board and Northeast Bank.
