The Extra-Terrestrial Book

An artist lecture with Timothy C. Ely on January 19 at 7pm

January 19, 2018
7:00-8:00 pm
Studios 1 & 2

Join artist Timothy C. Ely as he shares his process and techniques for bookmaking in this free lecture at the Schack Art Center. His work is currently featured in the exhibit, Drawings & Digressions, in the Schack mezzanine gallery.

Timothy C. Ely began making books when he was a child, mixing drawing, painting, and words in his journals and comic books. Later, during his undergraduate studies at WWU his philosophy of art, expression, and books began to unite. Following graduate school at the University of Washington, Ely undertook a self-directed study of bookbinding and started fabricating the work he is known for today, which combines his unique take on English style binding techniques with his visionary drawings.

Over the last forty years, Ely's books and other works have sprung from a central core of concepts, owing to a fascination with obscure or seemingly incomprehensible forms inspired by science and other projects from the history of the human imagination.
