The Critique Group at the USM Kate Cheney Chappell ’83 Center for Book Arts consists of artists who are bound together by their passion for making artists’ books. All members have taken classes in the Book Arts program at USM or attended workshops at the USM KCC’83CBA. Working in a variety of media, book structures, and a broad range of subject matter, we meet once a month in the Pope-Cheney Art Studio at USM’s Wishcamper Center for constructive feedback, insightful questions, and informative discussions about our books – both completed books and those in progress. Our work is on display at the Pope/Cheney studio in the Wishcamper Center during March, April and May.

In addition, we support, promote, and raise awareness for the KCC’83CBA  in the Portland community and beyond by attending lectures, workshops, and exhibitions. For the past four years we have created an annual collaborative artists’ book that is raffled at the Book Arts Bazaar to raise funds for educational programming. We have also donated two of these books to the Special Collections at Glickman Library.
