Marilyn Sward Collection to be Exhibited

A rich collection of the late Marilyn Sward's artwork is soon to be exhibited at the Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts entitled Speaking in Paper. Mark your calendars for the quickly approaching opening reception, on June 9 from 5:30-8:30pm.

She was an important artist during a critical period when hand papermaking was coming into its own as a fine art medium. Her passion is exhibited in her artwork, alternative photographic process, travel journals that contain the richness of the excursions and the forest of Treewhispers which continues to grow, gathering handmade paper with artwork, poetry, stories — connecting...
