OPULENCE: NOT EVERYTHING THAT GLITTERS IS GOLD
July 11 – September 22, 2018
Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director & Curator, The Center for Book Arts
Our 2018 Artist Members Exhibition, featuring artist members as well as invited artists, focuses on artworks that look behind the velvet curtain, in particular at our current economic, social, political, ecological, and cultural issues/concerns. Oxymoron, contradiction, and irony are key to these playful works that have multiple layers of meaning and interpretations.
Artists Include: Lynne Avadenka, Doug Beube, Rosemarie Chiarlone, Béatrice Coron, Kaleta Doolin, Bonnie C. Epstein, Eileen Ferara, Anne Gilman, Iris Grimm, Lyall Harris & Patricia Silva, Aaron Krach, Carole Kunstadt, Marlene MacCallum, China Marks, Norma Marquez, Peter O’Brien, Lisa Occhipinti, Iviva Olenick, Rocco Scary, Richard Reitz Smith, Gail Smuda, Mary Ting, Sally Totsi, Harvey Tulcensky, and Karen Viola
Support for the Center for Book Arts’ Visual Arts Program is provided, in part, by the New York State Council for the Arts, with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs of the city of New York in partnership with the City Council.
