June 4 – July 27
Collins Library, University of Puget Sound
What exactly is a book? Is it simply a container of information? An object with pages and covers, and a narrative of some sort? A collection of pictures and words? A small sculpture? The 8th annual exhibit of the Puget Sound Book Artists explores all of these possible definitions and more. The participating artists play with the form of a book. They use traditional formats and bindings in new ways. They make books using all sorts of media and materials; origami folding, popup pages, drawing, painting, printmaking, knitting, sewing, wood and found objects, to mention a few.
This year Puget Sound Book Artists is celebrating their 8th exhibition and it will amaze and astound you.
Each book is a fresh take on what a book can be and how its creator thinks and imagines.
