Beyond Words: Artworks by the Book Arts Guild of Vermont
Yesterday I attended the opening for the first of the Book Arts Guild of Vermont‘s annual exhibits – Beyond Words. That’s right – we have more than one exhibit this year.
The first (and currently open) show is at Studio Place Arts in the Second Floor Gallery. Here’s how the gallery describes the show:
Books can take on a language of their own, as shown in the multimedia work of this group of artists that use shape, structure, and materials to get their message across.
It’s a sweet little show with lots of wonderful member work.
Here are a few of my favorite pieces (I seem to be drawn to red, orange, and black work):
And this is my piece for the show – Fine Art:
I’ll be sharing the story behind this piece in another post. It’s part of an edition of five books and each comes with a protective box.
I’m really proud of the work I did and it’s a miracle that I could squeeze in its production during Anna’s naps. Well, and I stayed up late working for several days. It was hard.
Studio Place Arts is located at 201 North Main Street in Barre, VT. The exhibit runs now through June 30th.
It’s well worth the visit. And if you make it to Barre, my studio is about 15 minutes away – give me a call and we can schedule a studio visit. You’ll get two book arts experiences for the price of one!
- Tuesday – Friday: 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
- Saturday: 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
For more information about the exhibit, please visit studioplacearts.com or call (802) 479-7069.
Note: If you can’t make it to the exhibit, you can view all of the included pieces on the Book Arts Guild of Vermont website.
