Annetta Kapon: 2012-13 Faculty Development Grant Report

Hand-made lamp by Annetta Kapon

Hand-made lamp by Annetta Kapon

Excerpt:

I was awarded $2500 to self-publish a hundred 22-page books of photos of my hand-made lamps from 1992 to 2008. The book is a work in its own right, not a catalog or documentation. The inspiration was seeing Jacci den Hartog’s beautifully produced catalog for a show at Rosamund Felsen Gallery last year.

A copy of the book will be donated to the Otis Library—another is on file in the Graduate Fine Arts office. You can download a free pdf of the book for your ipad or iphone, after you have downloaded ebooks, a free app.

Acting Chair, Graduate Fine Arts
