Title: “Marvelous Marbling: The Norma B. Rubovits Collection at the Newberry Library"
<Because of a scheduling conflict at the Cliff Dwellers, the dinner meeting will take place TUESDAY evening November 16th instead of our usual Wednesday evening. With sincere apologies for the inconvenience. >
Periodically since 1992, Caxtonian Norma Rubovits has been transferring parts of her extensive collection of marbled papers and books on marbling nd binding to the Newberry Library. Norma acquired her collection almost entirely by exchange with other talented artists. It is a selective collection, embracing only the best papers by the best artists in the field. Now numbering over 4,000 sheets of paper, the Rubovitz collection is believed to be the second largest in public hands in the USA. The Newberry is honoring Norma with a retrospective of her 45-year career as a paper marbler and fine binder. Wing curator and Caxtonian Paul Gehl will describe and illustrate Norma's work, show highlights of her collection of marbled papers from around the world and describe the ways the collection is used. Join us for a celebration of on of our most eminent members.
