The Paper Wasp

Hey everyone...sorry for the long absence!
I have been busy lately with many projects, but plan to get back into the blog more actively.

I am pleased to announce that The Paper Wasp - studio-gallery-bindery will open in September 2009 at 306 Dauphin Street in downtown Mobile.

The space will feature Artwork by Local and Regional artist each month, with Openings being in conjunction with LODA Artwalk each Second Friday of the month. The Paper Wasp will offer many things to Mobile...Bookbinding Supplies, Small Workshops, Hand Marbled Papers, Hourly Studio rental for area bookbinders. At the heart of all of this will be Books, it has been a long time dream of mine to enrich the area I live in with a greater access to the world of Book Arts and Book Binding.

My team is on board and we are ready to get started with the retooling of the space.
Wayne McNeil - Gallery and Exhibition Director
Vikki Turner Finch- Assistant Director/Media Relations
Dee Carriglino- Business Manager/Graphic Design
Susan Wertelecki - Gallery Assistant
