Big Ideas, Small Books exhibit at Emile Gruppe Gallery
Last week I attended the opening reception for Big Ideas, Small Books, the spring member exhibition of the Book Arts Guild of Vermont.
The exhibit was so precious – it features artist books smaller than five inches in any dimension.
I wanted take some of the books and pop them in my mouth.
Don’t worry – I didn’t do it.
For the exhibit, I submitted all four books that I created during the Book Arts Improv in January. I was delighted to find that my books had been given their own wall! It was a small wall, in between a bathroom and a thermostat, but still awesome. 🙂
As I mentioned earlier, the exhibit was really fabulous. Here are some of my favorite pieces:
A tunnel book by Marcia Vogler – Sneek:
A super-teeny book by Monica Feeney – Button Book:
A tunnel-ish book by Jill Abilock – Love Illuminated Series – Eye of the Beholder:
Every time the Book Arts Guild of Vermont has an exhibit, I am always impressed with the variety of work – it is such delight! I am so honored to be part of an organization that has such talented members.
