Friends White Gloves: Artists' Books
Join us for an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the artists' books in the Library's collection.
Artists' books are an art form that explores the book format as a canvas for artistic expression. The Library has a beautiful collection of exceptional artists' books with tiny, exquisite handprints, hand-made paper, sculpted paper, extraordinary bindings, and many other usual methods that artists use to express themselves.
Renowned local artist Dianne Fogwell will introduce members and guests to the beautiful, extraordinary and sometimes confronting work on display.
