PSBA 2012 Members' Exhibit
Artist’s reception: Thursday June 7, 2012 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm
In addition, there will be a discussion with the book artists in the exhibition on June 20, 2012 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. We will open the display cases and each artist will have the opportunity to share his/her inspiration, working process and use of materials. I can tell you from my experience last year, that this discussion was The Best. Many books have moving parts and pages that cannot all be seen without turning the pages. If you are curious about one or two of the books, June 20 is the night to show up. I'll be there. Please join us.
“The interdisciplinary art form of the book as art has always intrigued us and we are delighted to bring this 2nd annual exhibition to Tacoma. Books by nature are intimate, interactive and engage the reader. The exhibition features over 30 artists, some well known and others emerging. The artists have used a variety of structures and moveable elements with an array of materials ranging from handmade papers, photographs, fabric, thread, wire, decorated paper, and found materials. Themes include nature, literature, politics, social issues, family and personal history. “Once again, we are delighted by the number of talented artists who entered the exhibition.” Lucia Harrison, MalPina Chan, Debbi Commodore and Randi Parkhurst, curators.
