Bound to Happen – Exhibit of work by the Book Arts Guild of Vermont
June 7, 2019
266 Pine Street
Using the book as a format or as material, artists use the interaction of concept, structure, materials, and content to create a kind of happening or experience for the reader.
The exhibit, the first at the gallery since April 2012, includes a wide range of techniques and subject matter ranging from repurposed books turned into sculptural shapes to miniature woven paper structures.
My piece, You Can’t it with You, is part of the exhibit – this is the first time that the piece has been shown in Vermont. It’s a hybrid artist’s book and board game that focuses on why we keep things and why we should get rid of them. If you make it to the exhibit, feel free to play the game – it’s fun and goes by quickly.
