Book Signing + Talk with April Greiman
July 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, July 8th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM, please join us for a conversation with April Greiman on the launch of her latest book, WhiteSpace: April Greiman Photography, an arresting collection of 34 digital photographs and short writings by 25 women in design, art, architecture and poetry, on the abstract subject of whitespace. “WhiteSpace is like a trip to the desert with April and her wonderful colleagues. A master class in shadow and light,” writes Laurie Haycock Makela in the foreword. During the evening, April will be joined by contributors to the book, including Frances Anderton, for a series of readings and insights into April’s use of bold color and negative space, breaking boundaries in art, design, and architecture throughout her career.
With an international reputation in art and design spanning decades, Greiman’s WhiteSpace is her first self-published book of photography, and as a result, is impeccably designed using a variety of papers and textures. This intimate book not only reveals her personal vision of space and light, but highlights her deep friendships with creative women colleagues. Their extraordinary insights, combined with Greiman’s sublime imagery, create a rhythmic meditation on emptiness, openness, beauty, fear, and a multitude of provocative perceptions.
