With environmental stewardship close to our hearts, we are pleased to be participating in EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss a multimedia, multi-venue, cross-border art intervention which seeks to provoke societal change by exposing and interrogating the negative social and environmental consequences of industrialized natural resource extraction.

Kent Manske & Nanette Wylde, From this Earth, 2020

From this Earth is a collaborative artist’s book written, and produced while sheltering-in-place during the 2020 pandemic and while wildfires raged across California. It is a story of transformation. An individual journeys through a devastated landscape seeking relief, motivated by an inner impetus. Text by Nanette Wylde.

Kent Manske, Resurrection, 2021

Jeff Evans Residency

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Jeff Evans Swirl

We are pleased to announce a new Weekend Residency in the Print Studios project by writer and photographer Jeff Evans.

Jeff came to his residency just days after the June 17, 2015 mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. As a member of the Charleston community, Jeff was deeply affected by this event. He participated in and documented many community support gatherings–memorials, services, vigils, and political actions.

His residency project, SWIRL, is a handbound artist’s book. It is also available via Hunger Button Books as a print-on-demand edition.

SWIRL is a creative reflection juxtaposing photographs, texts, local newspapers; and acts as a memorial for both the victims and Charleston community.

Hello Catty!

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

Hello Catty! by Karen Chew and Nanette Wylde

Karen Chew and Nanette Wylde are meowing up a storm over the completion of their new book Hello Catty!

Hello Catty! is a light-hearted, yet poignant play on catty behaviors couched by a feline perspective and inspired by the meanness of others.

Designed as a movable board book, it consists of five two-page spreads. Each spread contains user interactive elements: wheels, pop-ups, pulls, spinners, windows, flaps, a game and ephemera.

A Hello Catty! celebration event is scheduled for late April. Contact either Karen or Nanette to be included in the guest list. Space is limited.

See more about Hello Catty! at Hunger Button Books.
