Join us for a virtual artist talk featuring Cathy Ryan, winner of the 2022 Minnesota Book Artist Award!

About this event

Cathy Ryan is the winner of the 2022 Minnesota Book Artist Award, a biennial award presented as part of the Minnesota Book Awards with Minnesota Center for Book Arts that recognizes a Minnesota book artist or group for excellence of a new artistic work.

Cathy will give an artist talk detailing the processes and techniques she used to create Chronicle, a screen-and letterpress-printed artist's book about the personal and collective experience of 2020. In it, she examines the stark contrast between the reassuring cycles of nature and the uncertainty of political turmoil amid a worldwide health crisis. She will also contextualize how Chronicle fits into her artistic process as a whole, touching on the themes and ideas that drive her work.

There will be time at the end for audience questions, so be sure to stick around! Read more about the exhibition here: https://www.mnbookarts.org/2022-minnesota-book-artist-award/
