Book Arts Guild of Vermont exhibit: Shaping Pages

Book Arts Guild of Vermont exhibit sign for "Shaping Pages"The Book Arts Guild of Vermont‘s spring exhibit, Shaping Pages opened on April 6th and is on display now through April 28th at the S.P.A.C.E Gallery in Burlington, VT.

Not only does the gallery host exhibits, but it also manages a number of artist studios. Overall, it’s a breathtaking creative environment.

The show at the S.P.A.C.E Gallery was one of the stops on the First Friday Art Walk, a Burlington event held from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on the first Friday of every month. It was mobbed!

I was thrilled to have my book Little Known Facts About Crap in the exhibit…

…and even more thrilled to see folks checking it out…

That's right dude...I was spying on you!

…and even more thrilled to learn that it sold at the opening!

This is the first time that I’ve seen a red dot next to my name. It’s weird and I like it!

I wonder if they’ll give the red dot to me when the show ends. Should I ask?

Yes, I’m a dork.

Guild members submitted some seriously fabulous work for the show. One of my favorite pieces is Marcia Vogler’s Dream Burger:

Dream Burger indeed!

Everything Marcia makes is super-awesome. That’s right Marcia – if you’re reading this, you now know that I think you have mad skills.

Marcia –

We’ll deem ourselves equally awesome and leave it at that. 🙂
