Event Details

Foreground, Middle Ground, Background: Artist’s Books and the Monson Landscape with Rebecca Goodale
Date: July 19 – July 22
Students of all levels are welcome.
We will explore the beauty around us and add to it our imaginations as we design and make star books, flags books, theater books and dioramas. These books will become a suite of keepsakes marking our time together at Monson Arts.
For over twenty years Rebecca Goodale has been creating a series of artist’s books about Maine’s rare plants and animals. Recently she has been revisiting her training as a textile designer by employing that aesthetic and various printmaking techniques to create large scale repeatable patterns. Rebecca has taught Book Arts and Design at the University of Southern Maine, Bowdoin College, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Maine Media. College & Workshops. Her work is in many collections including the Maine Women Writers Collection at UNE, Bowdoin College Library, Herron Art Library at IUPUI, Boston Athenaeum, Yale University, Harvard University, the Smithsonian Museums, the Library of Congress, State Art Museum of Hawai’i; the Children’s Museum in Seoul, Korea; and the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

Organizer

Monson ArtsMonson Arts is a residency and workshop program in Monson, Maine. An initiative of Maine’s Libra Foundation, Monson Arts began programming in 2018. It was started as a way to spur economic development in Piscataquis County. Monson, the last town before the 100 Mile Wilderness on the Appalachian Trail, was the home of photographer Berenice Abbott, painter Carl Sprinchorn, and was a center for slate quarrying and furniture making. Monson Arts’ mission is to provide time and space for creative work. This is done through a combination of residencies, workshops, community/school programs and initiatives, and exhibitions. 8 Greenville Rd. Monson, Maine
