Annette Mitchell (Art) has a block print accepted into the upcoming National Juried Monotype/Monoprint Exhibition at the Attleboro Arts Museum in Attleboro, Mass.

Only 127 pieces were selected by juror April Gallant, Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Smith College Museum of Art. Over 800 images were submitted by 298 artists. Annette’s print, After Hours, was created using the foam plate printing process that she developed. The exhibition is scheduled for September 6-October 3.

Annette collaborated with Davida Cook and Denise Linet in a show “Reverberations: A Dialogue Between Three Artists” at the Chi Lin Gallery in Meredith, NH from June 30-July 31, 2008.

“Making Her Mark, a Women’s Caucus for Art” exhibition at Silver Center for the Arts from July 2-October 1, includes two works of art by Annette that combine drawing and block prints.

The Mill Brook Gallery and Sculpture Garden in Concord, NH is displaying work by gallery painters that include Annette’s work August 1- November 9.


David Berona,(Library); David Hajdu, Columbia University; and Mike Kelly, New York University will present “Reading Pictures, Burning Comics: New Perspectives on the History of Graphic Narrative” as part of Columbia University’s The Book History Colloquium in New York September 25.

The publication of two recent books—Berona’s “Wordless Books” (2008) and Hajdu’s “Ten-cent Plague” (2008)—inspired this panel discussion.

Moderator, comics scholar, and rare book curator Mike Kelly will lead a discussion with Berona and Hajdu on current scholarship, historical perspectives, and a consideration of the place wordless books, graphic novels, and comics hold in both contemporary culture and the History of the Book.
