The art of the handmade book is the fastest growing genre in the fine arts field worldwide.
Finely crafted books have been treasured through history, but now they have jumped their covers to become sculptures of all kinds, and even to hang on walls like paintings!
Join us Saturday, June 5, from 10am-5pm, to walk among them, touch them, read them, or just look at them in awe. Over 100 books in the largest book arts and art journaling show ever in New Mexico.
Art Journaling is another exciting form of book art and you will be able to see some of the best examples from seven art journalers – sent to us from as far away as Australia and Great Britain.
This juried exhibition, entitled “Pages:1020” opens with an all day reception in the La Tienda exhibit space on Saturday, with refreshments being served at The Art Garden (sponsor of this event).
The exhibition runs through July 4th, with weekly hours Wed-Sat, Noon – 5pm.
