As part of “Spirit Compass,” our exhibition of the books and works on paper of Robin Price, Bromer Booksellers & Gallery hosted a virtual panel discussion on Price’s newest work and how it resonates with her long career in the book arts. Price’s art, the methods she employs, and her creative influences stem from a variety of intellectual and emotional sources; the panelists reflected upon these diverse contexts, drawing from their own experiences and relationships with Price’s work to elucidate the thematic layers of “Spirit Compass.” Price herself was the first panelist, and she was joined by Harry Reese, proprietor of the Turkey Press & Edition Reese; Ruth R. Rogers, curator of Wellesley College’s Special Collections; Betty Bright, historian of artists’ books; and Meredith Santaus, exhibit curator and event host. Learn more about the speakers below:

Robin Price

Robin Price is an artist, editor, designer, letterpress printer & publisher, creating artists’ books since 1984. “A chameleon among book artists,” she has a long history of collaborating with others, with extensive diversity in content and form. Her limited edition press books, prints, and unique work are collected and exhibited internationally. Robin established her press in the Los Angeles area in 1984, under the imprint Lavender Armadillo Press, later revised to Robin Price, Printer & Publisher. Since 1995, the press has been located in an historic textile mill in Middletown, Connecticut, producing work with a team of assistants, apprentices, and interns over the years.

Harry Reese

After forty years of teaching print, papermaking, book art, and media ecology classes, Harry Reese retired in June 2018 from UC Santa Barbara and now concentrates full-time on projects with Sandra Liddell Reese at Turkey Press & Edition Reese in Isla Vista, California. With an emphasis on letterpress printing and original printmaking, they feature their own handmade paper, typography and design, bindings and book structures, and collaborations with artists, poets, and writers.

Ruth R. Rogers

Ruth R. Rogers is Curator of Special Collections, Wellesley College, specializing in the evolution of the book as material culture, visual communication and artistic form. She is responsible for strategic collection development of rare books, manuscripts, and contemporary artists’ books, and teaches a hands-on intensive seminar, History of the Book from Manuscript to Print as Lecturer in the Art Department. With a focus on material book history and the critical reading of contemporary artists’ books, Rogers is a co-founder and collaborator in the area of Book Studies at the College, a cross-disciplinary approach to past and future forms of textual communication.

Betty Bright

Betty Bright is an independent scholar and curator who authored the critical work, No Longer Innocent: Book Art in America, 1960-1980 (Granary Books, 2005), the first history to trace the emergence of the artist's book in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s. Previously, she helped start Minnesota Center for Book Arts (MCBA) in Minneapolis, a studio-based arts and educational organization that celebrates the arts of the book. She worked at MCBA for nine years as program director and curator of over 50 exhibitions. Bright is the author of numerous articles, reviews, and essays, including in Counting on Chance: 25 Years of Artists’ Books by Robin Price (Wesleyan University, 2010). Bright holds a PhD in Art History from the University of Minnesota.
