Binghamton Art Museum Carder Exhibit
I just heard back from the Binghamton Art Museum and there are no posters for sale. They only printed one for the exhibition. I was told I was free to print the attachment to the email but that hasn't proved satisfactory.
Still, it was a bit of a useful exercise because enlarging the poster image to try to print it made it possible to read the names of the donors - Peter Bridge and Terry Peet. Those names are unfamiliar to me. I'm glad to know that the universe of Carder collectors is large enough that I don't know them all at this point. I just wish they had been club members or at least Symposium attendees at some point. I guess not everyone is a "joiner."
The Carder Steuben Upcoming Symposium program and registration materials are also on the Club's website.
