“Artists’ books are a natural meeting place for image and word.” —Charles Hobson
As an artist who uses pastel, monotype, and other printmaking variations to construct images for books and works on paper, Charles Hobson has had a non-traditional career path in the art field.
After practicing commercial law for twenty years, he began publishing his own limited edition artists’ books in 1988. Since then, he has taught at the San Francisco Art Institute and produced work that is now held by the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, and the National Gallery, among others.
Hobson will discuss his work on Thursday, May 10 at 6:00 PM, in a talk titled “Small Inventions: The Artists’ Books of Charles Hobson.” This event is FREE to attend and open to the public.
