University of Victoria Libraries Publication Series

[untitled]: The Artists' Archives at the University of Victoria Libraries (2019)

[untitled]: The Artists’ Archives at the University of Victoria Libraries is the sixth publication in our series, and it highlights the archives of four celebrated artists from Special Collections and University Archives. In a commitment to preserving significant local and regional art history, UVic Libraries has made artists’ archives an acquisitions priority, and this publication focuses on some of the rare and unique holdings in our Artists’ Archives.

Departing from the codex form of our previous publications, [untitled]: The Artists’ Archives at the University of Victoria Libraries is produced as a limited-edition series of booklets, each one focusing on the archives of a different artist: ceramicist Robin Hopper (CM, RCA), painter and digital artist Glenn Howarth (RCA), multidisciplinary artist Sandra Meigs (RCA), and painter and mosaicist Margaret Peterson. Featuring an interview with potter Judi Dyelle, conducted by Lara Wilson, Director of Special Collections and University Archivist, and essays by John Durno, Head of Library Systems at UVic Libraries; Robert Amos (RCA), painter and writer; and Helen Marzolf, former Director of Open Space, these booklets introduce readers to the range of archival resources held at UVic Libraries. The publication’s open-ended format is intended to accommodate our vision of adding new booklets, profiling different artists, in the years to come.
