Note cards featuring art by Joseph Goldberg, whose work is highlighted in the book Joseph Goldberg: Jeweled Earth, by Nathan Kernan and Regina Hackett, are available for purchase from the University of Washington Press. Proceeds from the sale of the cards support the Press's Thomas T. Wilson Series of books on Northwest artists and art history.
The 5" x 7" note cards feature encaustics - a painting technique using heated beeswax and colored pigments - spanning twenty years of the artist's career. Each boxed set of twelve cards includes two each of six images and matching envelopes. One set of cards features the paintings Magnifier (1987), Wall Ghosts (1999), Architecture (2001), Cry of the Wolf (2002), Chaco (2005), and Flicker (2007). The other set features Hollow Rock Field (1992), Jeweled Earth (2003), Yellow Dawn (2005), Soap Lake (1996), Cinnabar (2007), and Hunter (2004).
The Bloomsbury Review offered high praise to Jeweled Earth, calling it "a lovely volume of fine reproductions. . . . A collection of paintings that are gentle in spirit and refreshing in form. Goldberg has carved out a career going his own way in art. It is encouraging to see such fine art receiving a beautiful presentation."
Suggested donation for the note cards is $15 per box, or $25 for two boxes. Cards can be purchased at the UW Press reception desk.
A limited number of prints by Barbara Thomas, Jacob Lawrence, and Gwendolyn Knight Lawrence are still available. Click here for more details.
