PURGATORY PIE PRESS happily ever after limited editions, artist books & how-to

Artist reception and book-signing Thursday October 28 4:30- 6pm

Esther K Smith heard Dikko Faust howling at the moon on WKCR when she first transferred to Beloit.  Faust  began Purgatory Pie Press  pieing (spilling) an entire overfilled case of 8 point metal type in Madison, Wisconsin.  He moved to New York City; Smith followed. Their 1980 wedding invitation was their first letterpress collaboration.

Working with over 100 other artists and writers, they have had solo exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Victoria & Albert Museum. Collections include Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney and the Walker.  Faust's typography enhances Smith's how-to books.

Regina V. Benson: Informed Dichotomy

Regina Benson is a Colorado artist working in the textile medium creating dimensional art quilts using her own surface designed cloth. Specializing in the discharge and rusting of synthetic and natural fabrics, Regina creates work about and within her environment; executing her designs directly on the rocks, grasses and snow of her mountain landscape. Her completed installations float on and off walls and ceilings, inviting the viewer to share in her art’s visual and physical space.

One of Regina Benson’s large environmental installations, “Western Rain” is on display in the Center for the Sciences building.
