The University of Washington Press is more than 90 years old and has published and distributed thousands of titles, many that have made significant contributions to our culture. The Press’s importance nationally and regionally is well known in the publishing and book selling world—particularly in the fields of Native American history, art and culture; Northwest and American art; African American art and history; Asian studies; architecture; and regional history and issues.
Marquand Books Studio is proud to honor the Press by exhibiting a selection of some of UWP’s most important and beautiful titles from its many decades of fine publishing. Please join us during the First Thursday Art Walk January 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. for this important tribute.
Marquand Books Studio/Paper Hammer is located at 1400 Second Avenue in downtown Seattle.
Randy Hayes’s exhibit will be open this Friday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Marquand Books Studio space, adjoining Paper Hammer. Selections from Kyoto Views will then be open at the Mississippi Museum of Art from February 19 through July 17:
Mississippi-native Randy Hayes’ recent interest in Japan actually began on the Mississippi Gulf Coast after finding a Japanese style house heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina. At the time he was working on a series that compared the area with ruins in other parts of the world. The diptych Pass Christian/Kyoto from the Ruins series was the impetus for Kyoto Views. This body of work is based on the artist’s photographs of Kyoto. Hayes incorporates an array of imagery from East and West, often borrowing from traditional Japanese printmaking aesthetics, and elegantly combining layers of images in oil on photographs.
Marquand Books Studio is located at 1400 Second Ave. at Union in downtown Seattle.
Seattle Times arts writer Michael Upchurch recently picked the Marquand-produced Salvador Dalí: The Late Work as a book worth gifting this holiday season. Designed by Jeff Wincapaw, the exhibition catalog accompanies the lauded Dali show at the High Museum in Atlanta, running through January 9. The exhibit and book focus on more than 40 paintings and media produced by Dalí post-1940, including 1957’s Santiago El Grande and 1951’s Christ of Saint John of the Cross.
The book can be purchased directly from the Yale University Press page here.
