Congratulations to our friend and Magnolia Street neighbor Chris Fraser, who is currently in Tokushima, Japan for the 2016 Artist in Residency program at Awagami Paper Factory.

Fraser is represented by Gallery Wendi Norris. You may recall Awagami as the family-run handmade paper mill responsible for the giant (55.5 x 44 in!) sheets of handmade paper used in Chuck Close's 2014 watercolor edition Phil. Magnolia is pleased to continue its relationship with this historic yet innovative company, and to see them partner with the talented Fraser to create exciting new works involving handmade paper.

Congratulations, Chris!
