Work by Jennifer Koshbin
For those of you who don't know me, or if I have moved one too many times for you to keep up with me (which is most likely the case!), one thing that is relatively new in my life is my involvement with Seattle Center for Book Arts (SCBA). January will mark my one year anniversary as a member of the Board of Directors for SCBA. I have to say that this organization has more than inspired me during that time. Not only have I had the opportunity to be exposed to some amazing art, but more importantly my fellow board members have enriched my life. Such good people, and such talent! I am sure I will post about these new friends individually at a future time.
With SCBA I have been gearing most of my efforts toward managing the marketing of our programs, classes, and events. One of those marketing efforts is the SCBA Blog. Recently I posted a feature on some book artists around the country that, in my opinion, just rock the book arts world. Just jawdropping altered books. Work like this amazes me, reminds me of how powerful a medium book arts is, and inspired me to create something new from something that already is - a concept that I will work on through my retail line. It also serves as a reminder of why it is so important that I continue working so hard for SCBA.
I will keep you all updated on happenings for Seattle Center for Book Arts, and if you feel the need to support SCBA financially or in any other way (volunteering, event attendance, etc.), let me know and I will make sure you get more info than you could wish for!
