2017 Summer Exhibitions Opening Reception
July 12, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for a reception to celebrate the opening of our Summer 2017 Exhibitions:
Animation + Printing
Protest ≠ Profest: Global Burdens
Wednesday, July 12th, 2017, 6-8 pm
This exhibition presents a selection of short animated films from around the US and the world, each created using techniques common in the book arts such as letterpress printing from moveable type, wood type, pressure printing, lino and wood cut, etching, silkscreen as well as animation in watermarked paper. These films represent a new territory for Book/Print artists and are interesting not only because of their technical production, but because we see printmakers trying their hand at animation, and animators trying their hand at print techniques and many for the first time.
This annual Artist Members Exhibition presents artworks that deal with activism or passionate convictions toward current societal concerns, issues, desires and/or trends. Focusing on artists’ books and works that relate to the concept of book arts.
