The artist on display at HML is June Tyler. Her studio, Pondside Pulp and Paper is in Norwich, New York where she works in handmade paper, printmaking and drawing. Since moving to Norwich in 1994, she has offered papermaking workshops in her studio during the summer along with other related topics. Last July, she team taught a workshop on her sculptural handmade paper lamps at the The Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory and Educational Foundation, Cleveland, OH, with Tony Carlone, a former student from SUNY Oneonta.
Her education includes an MFA in printmaking from Syracuse University, an MA in graphics and painting from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a BA in Studio Art from SUNY @ Potsdam. June has taught drawing and design courses at SUNY @ Oneonta 1995 – 2017 and papermaking and printmaking courses at Hartwick College between 2001 – 2002 and 2007 – 2014.
June has exhibited her work in drawing, printmaking, papermaking, artist books and mixed media for over 30 years. She had a solo exhibition of her drawings, mixed media work and handmade paper work at The Gallery at the Ann Felton Multicultural Center at Onondaga Community College, Syracuse, NY, October 2 – November 7, 2017. She gave an Artist Talk followed by a papermaking workshop in the Art Department in conjunction with the show, on October 4, 2017. Her work in handmade paper will be on display for the “Green” exhibit at the Smithy, in Cooperstown May 14 – June 17 and at the Chenango Arts Council in Norwich June 15 – 22nd. There will be a papermaking workshop/demonstration during the opening for this show on June 15th.
