Form as Content: Handmade Artist’s books

This exhibition runs from Saturday, Oct. 17th-Saturday November 17th. Opening reception is on Saturday, October 17th from 2-5:00.

Gallery Hours: Thurs., Fri. 3-8 and Saturday 12-5:00.

This exhibition, curated for Blue Door by Robin Hutchinson and Arlé Sklar-Weinstein, commemorates National Book Month with the historical art of the handmade book as created by contemporary artists.

Artists’ books are made for a variety of reasons. They are often created to make art that is interactive, portable, movable and easily shared. Many artists books challenge the conventional book format and create books that become sculptural objects or a form of mixed media artwork that changes a book from its original form, altering its appearance and/or meaning.

We invite art and book appreciators with their families to enjoy this book-making experience . Hands-on workshops will be programmed throughout the exhibit.
