Completed St. Louis YWC Journal!

Wow! Its done! The St. Louis Young Women's Caucus Art Journal is complete! Its been in the works for 4 months and tonight it has been wrapped up to be sent off to its first exhibit of 2011. Travel safely....

This is the front cover.

Side view - coptic stitched - took me 2 days to bind do to the cold I have.

The journal is about 2 inches thick! Includes, painting, drawing, stitching, collage, prints, cutting, text, and more... works by 8 artists each making entries for 1 week.

Title Page

I would like to thank Autumn Randell, Kate Freeman, Katie Tulk, Lydia Brockman, Rebecca Orf, Angeles Jonske, and Lyda Boda for participating in this project. I know that it was hard to make time for this project every day for a week. The results are amazing.

Each Artists also included a short artist biography. It will be interesting to look back on this book to see where we were in 2010 and where we went from here.

Colophon - It was fun to write as documentation to this project.

Back cover....

For those who hesitated about getting involved because of the time commitment but then wished to / or ones who found out about the project to late - dont worry - there will be more projects in the future! Thanks for your support for this project and this group of YWC-STL members. There is room for everyone in WCA and internal caucus YWC.

This art journal and the other YWC art journal that are involved with this Traveling Journal Project will traveling during the year 2011. During the month of July they will be displayed in St. Louis, venue "to be announced".

To many future art projects for WCA-STL and YWC-STL,
Roxanne Phillips
