Exhibit: The Art of the Book

A new exhibit, “The Art of the Book,” will be shown in the Blue Hill Public Library’s Howard Room glass cases from May 3rd through the end of July. The public is invited to a reception for the artists on Friday, May 19th, 5:00 to 7:00 PM. This show is offered by a collective of bookmakers, who have been making and sharing their artwork together for nearly 15 years. Handmade artist’s books express narrative through text, image and sculptural forms.

According to one of the bookmakers, Kristy Cunnane, “When we get together we share new book ideas or models along with food and conversation. We have inspired each other to grow as artists over time and have formed lasting friendships through our shared work. Indeed, this show is a celebration of our time together.”

Books in the show cover a wide array of media- prints, ink, watercolor, collage, found objects, photographs, acrylic–whatever. The artists include: Anne- Claude Cotty, Jennifer O. Pappas, Karen Zimmerman, Cathy Willey, Beth Smith, Kristy Cunnane, Holly Betrand, Judy Ham and Deborah Holmes.

The exhibit will be available for viewing during Library hours subject to the meeting room schedule through the end of July. For more information call the Library at 374-5515.
