Book Arts Roundtable presents Moving Pages and The Wall Dec 7-19
December 12, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Book Arts Roundtable 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 and Saturday 10-3 Gallery talk for both exhibitions, with participating artists 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.
