For the artists in this show, the interpretation goes beyond the three dimensional structure. The reading has layers, both physical and conceptual, engaging the viewer in a dialogue. Some of the pieces you’ll find on display will be recognizable as books, others less so.Please join us as we explore the often whimsical, sometimes serious world of book arts.
