Fall 2015 Book Arts Exhibits

Just a quick post to share a couple of stellar book arts exhibits happening in the USA this Fall.

Ten Years of Artist Books at the Brooklyn Public Library
Curated by Donna Seager, of Seager Gray Gallery 
Brooklyn Public Library
October 1st, 2015 - January 24th, 2016 

 Every year Donna curates an exhibit at her gallery called "The Art of the Book". This exhibit celebrates 10 years of that exhibit.

Some of my Exposed Spine pieces are in the exhibit, and as usual, Donna has gathered a group of amazing book works, by talented book artists, to keep them company.

 Be sure to check out the exhibit if you are in the New York area.

Another fabulously curated book arts exhibit is happening at 
Whatcom Museum, in Bellingham, WA.

Unhinged: Book Art on the Cutting Edge 
Curated by Barbara Matilsky
September 27th, 2015 - January 3rd, 2016

Below is an image of my piece in the exhibit entitled: If She Thought it Would Help, Zelda Would Use Her Antediluvian Curse Cache to Attain Her Revenge

And, boy oh boy, is Zelda in good company at this exhibit. Many of the book artists in this show are artists that I have studied and admired for years - some real foremothers and forefathers of the book arts genre. Also, included are many of my book arts colleagues and friends.

 It is a real honor to be included in both of these exhibits!
 
You can order a copy of the catalog for the Unhinged exhibit at Blurb here.
 
And, I believe you can order a copy of the Brooklyn Library exhibition catalog by contacting Seager Gray Gallery here

I won't be able to attend either exhibit but I hope that some of you can. 
 
Let me know if you do!
