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 www.chinamarks.net and at the Owen James Gallery in NYC.
