Opening at Printed Matter this week:  “WEPRODUCTIONS: Telfer Stokes * Helen Douglas”, opening this week.  The opening reception is on FridayMay 11, 6-8pm (Facebook event here) or for a conversation with Helen Douglas & May Castleberry nextThursday, May 17, 6-8pm (Facebook event here)

Organized by Douglas, the exhibition draws from extensive archival material to examine the working methods, surrounding context, and emergent themes (narrative, place, the natural world) that shaped the output of the press from the early 1970s through to the 2010s.

Spanning over 40 years of artistic production, the exhibition begins with the early bookworks of both Douglas and Stokes, charting the confluence as the two joined up in 1974 to produce collaborative large-edition offset publications. Solo offset editions by both artists are also examined as well as the smaller, digitally printed books, concertinas, and scrolls by Douglas.
