Booked 15 is at the Pierro Gallery

Booked 15

March 10 – April 7, 2018
10-4 daily (closed Sundays and March 30)
The Pierro Gallery at the Baird
5 Mead Street, South Orange NJ 07079
OPENING RECEPTION March 10th, 2-4 p.m.

This annual member’s exhibition of the Book Arts Roundtable is always one of the most popular shows of the exhibition season. Featuring more than sixty artists, the show is jam-packed with amazing books of all sorts and sizes, including some multi-dimensional books that more resemble sculpture. Each piece includes text or tells a story, and each displays a fascinating range of book- making techniques. Imaginative, colorful, often witty and always fun, the BOOKED exhibits offer delights to viewers of all ages, especially because most of the pieces are interactive – designed to be touched, read, shared and loved.                                                  

This year the BAR is adding a free public program in connection with BOOKED 15. China Marks, an internationally recognized artist who makes drawings, one-of-a-kind books, and broadsides that incorporate imagery and text, will speak about her work in a program titled Alive to the World: the Books and Drawings of China Mars. Please be our guests on Tuesday March 20th at 7:30 pm at the Baird Center.  
Marks’s drawings can presently be seen at and at the Owen James Gallery in NYC.
