Guest Speaker: Karla Olson

Thirty-year publishing veteran Karla Olson will bring you up to date on the latest challenges and opportunities in publishing. Then she will show you how and why it is so important — and easy — to make sure your book is the best that it can be. Whether your book is printed, in the works, or just an idea, this presentation will help you understand the best strategy and the steps you need to take to bring it to market.

Karla Olson has been working in publishing for over 30 years. She is currently the publisher of the book program at Patagonia (yes, the clothing company), the founder and principal of the consulting firm BookStudio, and the president of Publishers and Writers of San Diego.


Cerritos College Art Gallery is pleased to announce the establishment of an annual ART+TECH Artist-in-Residency program that will partner a local professional visual artist with the amazing technology resources available on the Cerritos College campus. This coming Fall 2014 semester, our partner will be the Engineering Design Technology department at Cerritos College (with future annual partners to include Automotive Technology, Machine Tool Technology, Welding, Woodworking, etc).


This year's residency provides the selected artist/collective with extended access to the college's state-of-the-art engineering design software and industry-scale 3D printers. The paid residency ($2,000) will include artist-led workshops with advanced fine art & technology students, as well as an exhibition/catalog of work­­­ produced during the residency period, to be held at the gallery in early Spring 2015.

Note: No prior experience with engineering design software/hardware required. Instead, we are looking to partner with a creative artist that is interested in realizing innovative aesthetic forms and/or addressing pertinent social concerns using non-traditional technology-based tools/materials.
