 SO… WHAT EXACTLY is a WAYZGOOSE?

A Wayzgoose is a popular celebration for book artists and papermakers, but especially for printers. If you hang around places like the Jaffe Center, “Wayzgoose” is a word you’ll hear every now and then. It’s got its origins in old English printers’ celebrations that traditionally fell on Bartlemas––St. Bartholomew’s Day (the 24th of August). By the arrival of Bartlemas each year, printers began to light lamps and candles in their shops for typesetting, for sunlight, like summer itself, was quickly waning. And so on that day, a good printshop proprietor would bring in not just the lamps and candles, but also some good food and strong ale to boot. Was there goose involved? Perhaps. All we know for sure is this annual printers’ celebration became known eventually as a Wayzgoose, a name now forever (and happily) tied to the book arts.

We’re taking over the third floor east of our home base, FAU’s Wimberly Library, for our 2nd Annual Wayzgoose Festival! Here’s what you can expect at this one, our best yet:

•  Activist Printer BEN BLOUNT of Evanston, Illinois http://benblount.com, will be running print demos all day in the Print Shop. Ben will deliver a ‘Gallery Talk’ in the Book Arts Gallery at 3.  Alongside Ben’s activist spirit, we’ll have the League of Women Voters here ready to register voters.

•  LIVE MUSIC all day with some of our favorite local musicians: Humble Waters (11 to 2) and Ella Herrera (2:30 to 5:30).

•  Plenty o’fun! CORNHOLE games by Nailed It Wood Creations. CRAFT PROJECTS: Printing, of course, in the Print Shop, and we’ll teach you how to make your own traditional paper printers’ hats from newspaper. Plus we’re transforming the Bindery with the installation of a Jaffe Collection piece that we rarely display: the Contemplation Tent by Louise Silk. Inside the tent: an exquisite corpse community writing project––each writer writes two sentences based on the sentence they see above. The goal? A wonky and entertaining short tale. (It’s a tradition that goes back to the Surrealists, so…)

•  Local makers! The WAYZGOOSE MAKERS MARKETPLACE throughout the library’s 3rd floor east wing. We’ll be selling our usual wonderful doughnuts plus, for this market, fresh artisan breads from Louie Bossi’s Ristorante, Bar & Pizzeria.

  • Plus a White Elephant Sale benefitting JCBA’s Dorothy Hamilton Memorial Scholarship Fund.

WORKSHOP: “Make a Dent”

Instructor Ben Blount

Sunday August 26, 2018 from 10 AM to 4 PM

 

Since the early 16th century the printing press has been used to share important information with the public. From announcements and warnings to propaganda and praise, the power of the press has been used for centuries to tell important stories. Author and literary icon Studs Turkel said the purpose of life is “To make a dent.” In this workshop, we’ll work with wood type to create posters with bite. We will make a literal and figurative impression (without damaging the type) by printing bold messages on paper. Do you have something important to say? Come to this workshop and put it down on paper.

 

Tuition Schedule & Registration:

$135 General Public / $125 FAU Faculty & Staff, Students from other Institutions / $115 FAU Students

Advance registration is required for all JCBA workshops. JCBA collects tuition day of workshop. Cash is preferred, but checks and credit cards are accepted, as well.

Full details here: http://www.library.fau.edu/depts/spc/JaffeCenter/workshops/make_a_dent.php

 

BIO:
Instructor Ben Blount was born and raised in Detroit. He is a designer and letterpress printer that loves type and putting ink on paper. Sometimes he turns what he prints into books. His work explores questions of race and identity and the stories we tell ourselves about living in America. Truth tellers and rabble rousers in all areas of popular culture inspire his work—from Dave Chapelle and Kara Walker to Mos Def and Amos Kennedy. He learned a lot about design at Washington University in St. Louis, a lot about printing at Columbia College Chicago, and filled in the gaps with mentors and practice. www.blountobjects.com

“Black and White” by Steve Whitlock

 

“As a wildlife artist and marine illustrator I enjoy a rare experience, someone who truly loves his work. My many years as a fishing guide and sportsman led me to the most rewarding and fun career anyone could ask for. If I paint it, I’ve done it, truth in the artwork is very important to me. As a true Florida native, I have over 40 years experience fishing, hunting and exploring the wild places most people never see. I hope you enjoy viewing my artwork. If you get a chance, stop by one of the art shows or tournaments and say hi. Tight lines, Steve”.

"Copper" by Steven Lloyd

“Copper” by Steven Lloyd

 

 

STEVEN LLOYD

 

Steven tells The Rickie Report, “I started out doing custom paint work on motorcycles and vehicles and everything else in between. I attended an airbrush seminar in Charlotte back in 2004 and noticed an aluminum panel that someone had pinstriped. It caught my eye and I inquired about it and one thing has just led to another. The possibilites are just endless what you can do with this style of art”.

 

"Time2Burn" by Steven Lloyd

“Time2Burn” by Steven Lloyd

 

“One of the things that I notice that I feel separates me from other artists is my finish work. People look at my art and they think that it’s glass, but its actually clear coated metal. When you spend hours polishing a work of art to the point where someone thinks that it is glass, I know I have done what I set to accomplish!”

 

 

"Job" by Steven Lloyd

“Job” by Steven Lloyd

 

About the FREE Art Giveaway piece:


“This piece features aluminum grade sheeting that has been hand ground into several different background patterns. The colored portions of the art have been through a process that I designed called “pigment flotation” in which the coloring is floated in a flamable solvent and set on fire. Once the chemicals have burned off you are left with a one of a kind unique design! Other highlights are then added to create depth. The art is then clear coated and polished to perfection”.

"Modern Spectrum" by Steven Lloyd

“Modern Spectrum” by Steven Lloyd

 

Steve goes on to explain, “I call this type of work “Ground Metal Art”. It is a very rare and unique style of art, and is made up of aluminum grade sheeting and automotive urethane paint materials. Each work of art is a true one of a kind. My paintings are full of energetic flowing lines that love the reflection of light to create that ultra modern feel. The colored artwork is created using a transparent urethane paint system that resembles the look of a hologram. In the past recent months I have discovered a new style that I call “pigment flotation” in which I float the colored pigments and then set them on fire to create a very unique burnt effect on the panels. These pieces have become very popular and are best viewed up close to see the hidden details. Most of the art is clear coated several times for maximum protection”.
