Event Description

 Join us for a talk by Don Farnsworth as he explores his years of experimentation with different media, synthesizing the historic and the unorthodox, and employing hybrid technologies in collaborative projects with local and international artists and works created jointly with his wife, Era Hamaji Farnsworth. As director of Magnolia Editions, Farnsworth has developed techniques that have revived and expanded the possibilities of processes including photogravure and tapestry, innovations which have led artists including Kiki Smith, Bruce Conner, and Enrique Chagoya to Magnolia Publications. Farnsworth has also worked with Chuck Close since 2005 to produce works in various experimental media, including Close's watercolor prints, tapestries and his ceramic works for the New York subway.

Born in 1952 in Palo Alto, CA, Donald Farnsworth received a BFA from the SF Art Institute in 1974 and an MA from UC Berkeley in 1977. Farnsworth is known internationally as an artist, a master printmaker, an authority on the history and manufacture of handmade paper, and more recently, as an innovator in digital technology and weaving techniques. He designed and led the building of a handmade paper mill for Nyumba Ya Sanaa, a nonprofit in Tanzania, and has taught art at universities for many years. In 1981 he founded Magnolia Editions, a fine art publishing company and collaborative studio in Oakland, California. His work is 10.in collections including, the Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts, the Brooklyn Museum, the Loyola University Museum of Art in Chicago, the National Museum of American Art, the David & Lucile Packard Foundation, the City of Berkeley, and the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University, Art in Embassies, and the San Antonio Museum of Art.
