The 2016 Keelung International Marine Environmental Art Project opened in Taiwan on June 5, 2016. For photos of the finished artworks by the 7 artists I selected for the 2016 project, see the Blog at http://nmmstartproject.wordpress.com
A big thank you to the staff of the National Museum of Marine Science & Technology and to the Keelung City Bureau of Cultural Affairs. The artists all did a great job creating their works during the 25 day residency in Keelung, and the works will remain on view around the Musuem’s grounds all summer.
I am back in the USA now and planning art projects in California and in Boston later this summer. I will teach a papermaking art class at Sierra Nevada College, on Lake Tahoe from July 25-29, 2016. See the college’s summer workshop site at http://www.sierranevada.edu/academics/summer-art-workshops-2/jane-ingram-allen/

It will be great fun to make paper at beautiful Lake Tahoe and use seeds in the paper pulp to grow flowers, feed the birds or otherwise transform over time. We will learn how to make paper from local plant materials and other purchased pulps using Asian and Western papermaking techniques as well as creating an outdoor collaborative sculpture installation on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Here are some photos of my installation “Lancaster Eco-Quilt” using seeds in a handmade paper quilt that I created as an artist in residence in March 2016 at the Lancaster Museum of Art & History, Lancaster, CA.
At the Sierra Nevada College workshops students can explore and create together in a supportive and fun atmosphere in a beautiful place. Hope you can join this workshop titled “Papermaking – Seed the Future”.
