The national juried exhibit
Un-speak-able opened last week at The Arts Center in Corvallis, Oregon. A year ago I submitted the idea of an artist book show to the Center’s Exhibition Committee during their Request for Proposals, 2011 season. Several committee members shared my interest in the art form, and in hosting their first exhibit of book arts.
My thanks to the Center’s curator Hester Coucke for inviting me to work with her on this show; our juror Barbara Tetenbaum, Professor and Book Arts Department Head at the Oregon College of Art and Craft; and the 48 book artists who graciously share their creations with the community.
Here are a few of my snapshots from the opening. To view complete descriptions and high-quality images of all Un-speak-able entries visit this link at The Arts Center.
