Wells Book Arts Spring Residency 2016

Each year the resources of the Wells Book Arts Center are made available to one resident artist for 1-3 weeks. The goal of the residency is to allow individual artists to extend their practice with the array of materials in the Wells Book Arts Center Collection. The opportunity gives full access for personal work but also a component of the residency contributes back to the Wells Book Arts program.

Our resident artist for 2016 will be Myrna Keliher of Expedition Press. She is a typographer, printer, and publisher hailing from Kingston, WA. Equally inspired by the letterform and the literary, Myrna’s work is rooted in handset type and poetry fragments. We look forward to what she creates during her time at Wells.
