The Saint John's Bible Presentation: "Tradition and Transformation"

Join us in the Murphey Gallery at 12:45pm on Sunday, February 24th, for a special presentation as part of our year hosting The Saint John's Bible. Suzanne Moore’s career as a maker of manuscript books spans more than 30 years. Her work is rooted in traditions of historical manuscripts, but her books are contemporary in approach, content and imagery. Suzanne's work on The Saint John's Bible, including ten interpretive illuminations and three special treatments came at a key time in her career, altering her perspectives, enriching her vision and offering challenges and inspiration for future work. Her illustrated presentation will describe the connections with, and divergence from, the rich history of the codex book. Her use of painting, printmaking and lettering has links to the past, with the vision and sensibility of a 21st-century artist. The session will begin with a light lunch.
