Two of my visual journals will be included in the “Il Libro: The Art of the Book” exhibition in the Case Art Building on the Barton College campus in Wilson. The exhibition will run through September 24 with a public reception on Sunday, Aug. 28, from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. Artworks featured in this exhibition represent contemporary bookmaking trends. The editioned books and one-of-a-kind artists’ books showcase include traditional sewn structures, altered books, sculptural books, broadsides and innovative approaches created in various media including letterpress, handmade paper, printmaking, photography, collage, fiber and ceramics.
In conjunction with the exhibition, the Barton Art Galleries will host “Book Arts Extravaganza Workshops” on Saturday, Sept. 10. Join other participants for a day of hands-on bookmaking and artistic journaling techniques. Instructors include: Lisa Beth Robinson, Gérard Lange, and Susan Fecho and myself. My workhop is on visual journaling and will run from 1-4pm.
