Twinrocker: 48 Years of Hand Papermaking

Founded in 1971, by Kathryn and Howard Clark, Twinrocker Handmade Paper was the first American handmade paper studio since 1929. Through the years, in their Brookston, Indiana studio, the Clarks have shown a steadfast commitment to their craft and paid scrupulous attention to the highest aesthetic and technical standards. Therefore, the name Twinrocker has become synonymous with excellence, integrity and, most of all, exquisitely beautiful handmade paper. This exhibition will feature artwork by celebrated artists that have worked with Twinrocker from the Clarks’ collection.

Calendar of Events

The institution now known as the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette began over 100 years ago, on April 14, 1909. After a “general awakening of art interests all over (the) country and state” Lafayette residents saw a chance to “stimulate and encourage interest in art and to give annual exhibitions, and also to establish and maintain permanent collections of works of art.”
