Book Arts HolidayS_MMM_2

Two Exhibits – On Display Dec. 7-19
At the Baird Center in the Pierro Gallery, 5 Mead Street, South Orange, NJ
Hours: Monday-Thursday, 10-4, Friday 10-3
Gallery talk for both exhibitions, with participating artists is Thursday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m.

Moving Pages – Participating artists were challenged to work with multiple book openings and layouts that move across folds or gutters. They use pre-treated paper, crumpled, textured, or decorative, and muted or pastel colors. The content incorporates symbols, diagrams and charts. Low-tech typewriting, stencils, hand-lettering, solvent transfers and rubber stamps tell the story.

 • The Wall was inspired by the current political discussion on “keeping people out.” Roundtable members were invited to create blocks of stone that open to tell a story, deliver a message, or provoke a thought.
