    Artists in Conversation
    Tony Bellaver & Mary V. Marsh

    Tony and I gave a presentation on our artist's books at Chung 24 Gallery in Noe Valley. Tony's book "In the Absence" is included in the current show, Touchstone, curated by Irene Imfeld, featuring landscape photography, and gallery director Diane Chung invited us to be Artists in Conversation.
    We had a great time talking about ways that we collaborate in making our art, and some of the photographic processes that we use.
    Big thanks to Jeff Heyman for this great photo!

    Positively Charged : Copier Art in the Bay Area Since the 1960s
    curated by Maymanah Farhat and Jennie Hinchcliff
    This exhibition at two venues explores the history of some of the creative hubs and artists through the lens of the copier art they produced. I look forward to this look back at what was going on when I first moved to San Francisco and discovered Postcard Palace, a nexus of copier art and artists.

    Work by Zach Clark, Sarah Klein, Mary V. Marsh, Andy Rottner and Lorna Stevens.

    Five Bay Area artists have translated their book works to mixed media objects and multimedia projects. The results challenge the viewer to consider the book as print, sculpture, animation, or electronic game. Some pieces share the process used in creating it, while others expand a concept by presenting it in a new format, broadening and enhancing our notions of what a book can be and do.

    Read Here Now

    Read Here Now
    Do you have a memory of reading a book, a story that you always associate with where you were, and what you were doing while reading it? While making my window installation Between Here & Now, I was thinking about this idea of experiencing both my physical location and the world in my mind at the same time.
    contribute a memory about reading
    Print out and write down a memory you have of reading a book that always reminds you of where you were when you were reading it.
    You can also color in the blank book to evoke the story or the place you remember. Please take a photo of each and email it to mary@mvmarsh.com. I will be sharing the stories on my instagram and compiling them into an artist's book.
