Kathryn and Howard Clark aren’t household names, but they loom large in the worlds of paper-making and hand-made fine art books. The founders of Twinrocker Paper Mill in Indiana will attend the 5-7 p.m. Thursday opening reception of the exhibit “Twinrocker: Forty Years of Hand Papermaking” at the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum on the Georgia Tech campus, 500 10th St. N.W., Atlanta.

Among artists represented in the show (through Dec. 17) are Robert Rauschenberg, Sally Mann, Louise Bourgeois, Jasper Johns, Jim Dine, Chuck Close, Willem de Kooning and Larry Rivers.

“Twinrocker has been and will continue to be a studio where artists can invent, improve and experiment with paper,” Kathryn Clark said.  “When we started, we sought to lead handcraft techniques to new artistic ends.  We wanted to encourage the revival of hand papermaking in America.  Twinrocker still works toward these goals.”

The Williams Paper Museum exhibit is free. Information: 404-894-7840, www.ipst.gatech.edu/amp.
