On July 23, multidisciplinary arts organization The Women’s Workshop Workshop in Rosendale will host its first-ever annual book fair. This book fair is part of the largest Upstate Arts Weekendback for its third year from July 22 to 24 with more than 100 exhibitions, performances and projects as well as 50 studios open.
Since 1974, the Women’s Studio Workshop has worked to create a space for artists to establish themselves and grow at any stage of their career. They strive to support all female, trans, non-binary, genderfluid and intersex creators with a complex of facilities for artistic creation, research, experimentation and exhibition preparation. Since its founding, WSW has brought over 5,000 artists to its space to create prints, photographs, art books, ceramics and other works of art.
WSW’s event will feature art books from over 30 independent artists, writers and publishers, and will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at their location on Binnewater Lane in Rosendale. At Upstate Art Book Fair, attendants can shop for zines, artist books and all printed matter both inside the studio and outside on the WSW patio. The event aims to create a welcoming platform for emerging and established publishers to sell their work, connect with each other, and share their work with the Upstate New York community.
