Earth Paper Sky, October 20-23, 2016

Join Us in Santa Fe

Land, sustainability, and water conservation are high priority matters as the language of global warming shifts from prevention to adaptation. As citizens of the world, artists, educators, toolmakers, conservators, printers, papermakers, and historians, our job is to collectively try to work for a better tomorrow. EARTH PAPER SKY, the 2016 Friends of Dard Hunter Annual Meeting, will be addressing these issues and more, while hosted by the New Mexico History Museum in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico. Come join the annual conference as we spend time collectively learning and engaging with our materials, land, and practices.

The conference begins on Thursday afternoon with optional tours of the Georgia O’Keeffe Research Center, our annual business meeting, reception, and Anita Lynn Forgach Keynote Address by John Risseeuuw. Friday we have a full day of presentations and talks planned at the New Mexico History Museum,, followed by a visit to the Museum of International Folk Art and demonstrations at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden. On Friday evening our members' exhibition, "Paper Love!," has its opening reception and later that night Kerri Kushman and Jay Fox will host a Pecha Kucha Power Session. On Saturday join us for more panel talks and afternoon demonstrations, concluding with a sumptuous banquet and exciting silent auction. Sunday morning will see our public planning meeting and an optional day-trip to Taos.

Our Paper Trade Fair, which will be open to the public, will run concurrently on Friday and Saturday in the lobby of the New Mexico History Museum.
