Celebration of the Book: Opening Reception
As I mentioned in this post, the Book Arts Guild of Vermont currently has an exhibit at the Firehouse Gallery in Burlington, VT – Celebration of the Book. I attended the opening reception this past Friday.
It’s amazing how different the books looked on display – there was an air of formality about it all. I was disappointed to find that the curator did not choose to include my handling instructions with my book. Instead it was marked “Please do not touch“. I understand why the decision was made, but I was still bummed.
While at the reception, I encouraged folks to handle my book. It gave me some satisfaction. The show runs from September 5 – 30, 2008. Be sure to check it out if you’re in the area.
Here are some pictures from the show, starting with my entry:
