About the Book
The blank pages and spaces in this album are designed
to be filled from the owner’s personal collection of photographs.
We hope to engage the process of grieving by encouraging
continued evaluation of the specific and broad contexts
in which Cal Wager was recognized; thus, the roles of musician
father, son, brother, partner, teacher and mentor
can be remembered and honored.
JOEL SEAH & KIMBER WAGER
Formally trained as a printmaker, Joel Seah received his Master of Fine Arts from Syracuse University and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from The University of Alabama at Birmingham. Until he relocated permanently to Royal Oak | Michigan this year to become the primary healthcare provider for his boyfriend, Seah maintained a tenure-track position in the Department of Art & Art History at the University of Southern Maine | Portland, where he was named as the Outstanding Emerging Teacher | Scholar for 2008. Upon his resignation, Seah started GreenBambooStudios - a graphic design business exploring ventures in commercial visual communication - as a means to support a now independently funded fine arts studio practice. In spite of having exhibited both internationally and nationally, as well as holding numerous visiting artist and artist-in-residence positions, Seah’s proudest accomplishment to date has been holding on to the same boyfriend for the past five years and counting.
