Spilled Ink

Found a copy of Maternal Mitochondria’s art project Spilled Ink in the shelves… If someone tries to buy this, Collected Works Bookstore is going to be really confused! Spilled Ink is a small chapbook filled with poetry, photography, and suminagashi from an artist residency at Wildacres in North Carolina. We had just read Amanda Palmer’s The Art of Asking, and I participated in the community that grew up around the book, sending free copies to people around the world (and sometimes getting weird, awesome book art in return). So we decided that Spilled Ink would not be purchasable, and would mostly be given to people who asked for it… I say mostly because I definitely foisted off a few on my poor friends! So it’s super fun to still find copies of this hidden around town.

All Sumi, All the Time

Thank you so much to everyone who came out for the workshop today! We had a wonderful time. If you’d like to be added to our e-mail list so you don’t miss future events, let me know. And if you missed the workshop today, there will be another one on Tuesday, August 14th at 5pm at Zephyr Community Art Studio, which will be part of an opening for the show “Water Sound: Suminagashi at Zephyr.” E-mail me at ws.isabel@yahoo.com if you are thinking about attending!
