Now through June 10th, the Focus on Book Arts conference has a Faculty-Staff Exhibit at the Collins Gallery of the Central Library in downtown Portland, Oregon. My artist’s book/game hybrid, You Can’t Take it with You, will be part of the exhibition.
I’m so honored to have my work shown alongside such a spectacular group of artists. Exhibitors include Pietro Accardi, Anne Covell, Sam Ellenport, Helen Hiebert, Andrew Huot, Roberta Lavadour, Jana Pullman, Shawn Sheehy, Bonnie Stahlecker, Barbara Tetenbaum, and Shu-Ju Wang.
The opening reception will be on May 3rd from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. There will be live music and refreshments – since I won’t be there, be sure to eat some cheese for me if you go.
In conjunction with the exhibit, there will be an artist panel discussion, Structure and Influence, on May 7th from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. It’s sure to be an interesting event, well worth a visit.
When the exhibit closes in Portland, it will move to the Pacific University Library in Forest Grove, Oregon. It will reopen on June 13th and close on the last day of the Focus on Book Arts conference.
