Reading Room #3, Photo Book Works, Mariam Aziza Stephan, Julia Johnson, Beacon, NY. 1 of 4
October 12, 2019 Saturday
We have known Mariam since Catherine (Murphy) was a visiting artist at UNC-Greensboro and the Weatherspoon some years ago. Miriam worked on a collaborative project with the poet Julia Johnson, which resulted in a book published by Photo Book Works in Beacon. Exhibited at Reading Room #3, were 12 drawings from a series of 100 that Mariam produced. Julia (who we hadn't met before) wrote poems about associations she saw in the drawings. No.3 Reading Room & Photo Book Works is owned and run by Paulette and David Rich (I may have something incorrectly here. I'm going to ask Paulette and David to correct me, if necessary). To the left of Mariam, one can get a glimpse of some of her drawings. And on the wall behind Allan is a partly blocked painting by David Rich. See the following three entries.
