Book Works exhibit

The most recent meeting of the Book Arts Guild of Vermont took place at the SEABA Gallery – it was the setting for our current group show, Book Works. I’m always impressed by the quality and variety of work that is created by members of our Guild.

Here’s a description of the show:

The artists redefine the normal concept of the book, using various mediums and techniques to construct or reconstruct pieces that tell a story, and can be ‘read’ in some way by the viewer. A group of books altered by folding and manipulating pages represents the outcome of the guild’s monthly meeting program where members share skills and encourage creative work. Other works represent the broad definition of the book as explored by painters, textile artists, and paper lovers.

My entry for the show was Superhero Handbook, a book I created during the 2014 Book Arts Improv. It was so nice to see it on display…

…and even nicer to see that it had sold!
