Wisconsin Book Festival presents Gaylord Schanilec for GAYLORD SCHANILEC: A NATURAL HISTORY
Internationally known for his exquisite color wood engravings, letterpress printing, and handmade books, Gaylord Schanilec has often focused his attention on the landscape, natural history, and culture of the upper Mississippi. This exhibition will include his four fine-press books (detailed below) focused on natural history—My Mighty Journey, by John Coy (2019), Lac Des Pleurs (2015), Sylvae (2007), and Mayflies of the Driftless Region (2005)—along with framed color wood engravings from each book and a wide selection of working materials.
Celebrate the opening of his exhibit at the James Watrous Gallery beginning at 5:00 PM. The artist will offer an informal gallery talk at 5:30. The exhibit runs from February 15, 2019 until April 7, 2019. Presented in partnership with the James Watrous Gallery and the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters.
