It is with great pleasure that the Carleton London Alumni Club announce the first event of 2012:  the Parallax Art Fair, hosted by Paul Taylor '00 and Derek Wallace '92.  Details and a personal invitation from Paul follow are below.  I also want to request that you RSVP with Derek Wallace (in addition to the RSVP instructions below) and state which date you would like to attend so that I can let Paul know.  The options are below, but the official Alumni Event will be on 15th February from 19:00-21:00 given the nature of the special preview as highlighted below.

Also, if anyone has space to let Paul stay with them while in town, please contact me.  As of now, I have extended the invite for Paul to stay with me for 3 of the 6 nights that he is in town. 

Any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Invitation from Paul 

Dear fellow Carleton Alumni,

My name is Paul Taylor '00 and I will be participating in the Parallax Art Fair in London, from February 15-18.  I would be honored if you could attend.  There is a special preview event on the evening of Wednesday the 15th, from 7-9 p.m. at the event's venue, Chelsea Old Town Hall on King's Road, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.  Please see the attached postcard for details and RSVP (please RSVP to if you can make it Wednesday night in order to be added to the guest list).  Regular hours for the fair are Thursday through Saturday, 10 AM to 6 PM, and admission is free.

The Parallax Art Fair is the creation of curator and art historian Dr. Chris Barlow, and is fairly unique in that it provides participants with a direct way to interact with the public, create contacts, and makes sales with no gallery commission.  Participants in the fair represent over 30 countries world-wide, and I'm excited to see an incredibly diverse range of work.  For more details on the fair and for a list of exhibitors, please visit

And now, for a little about me:  I grew up in Northfield, MN, and so had ample time to become familiar with Carleton and its environs.  At Carleton, I majored in Studio Art.  Upon graduating, I moved to Minneapolis, and spent about a decade there before attending graduate school at the University of California, Davis, where I received my MFA in visual art this past June.  I currently live in San Francisco, CA.  My work consists of site-specific installations  that explore those bits of our infrastructure we take for granted.  At P(AF) I will be showing photographic documentation of some of the work I completed during graduate school.  Please visit my website to get a feel for what I do:

Please feel free to email me for more information and I hope to see you in February! 

Best Regards,

Paul Taylor '00
