Welcome to the fourth edition of The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. Nearly 150 artists have answered a list of questions which make up The Pulse. Their responses will be presented as a series of online and print projects. Secret Sunday was the first project and the links to all the secrets can be found on the sidebar of my blog. The Book Guild is the second project and Chapter 18 starts right now!
All artists participating in The Pulse were asked to name their favorite art books. The Book Guild will present this list, along with links, book reviews, giveaways, and interviews with many of your favorite authors. And as members of The Guild, I am hoping YOU will participate by leaving comments related to the books in each post - for example thoughts, book reviews, personal experiences, or a link back to your own blog posts that include artwork based on a project in the listed book.
Chapter 18: Susan Tuttle
Lise Hoffman selected Susan Tuttle's Exhibition 36: Mixed Media Demonstrations + Explorations as her favorite.
Susan says, "The best way to give a synopsis of the book is to post the actual description from Amazon.":
"Within the pages of Exhibition 36, readers will enter a virtual art exhibit featuring thirty-six mixed-media artists whose collage, digital, assemblage, altered and repurposed art adorn the walls and pedestals of this unique gallery. The artists are "present" throughout the exhibit, answering questions, sharing their thoughts, talking about their work and offering instruction. The tour is structured to provide insight into the creative process of the artists whose work is on display and the reader will be delighted with the plethora of inspiration, articles, techniques and general visual candy. As a final bonus, many artists featured in the book have contributed imagery as a gift to readers for attending the exhibit to reuse in their own creations.
Possesses great crossover appeal for mixed-media artists of nearly every discipline, including jewelry makers, collage artists and more.
Readers will enter a "virtual tour" featuring art from a variety of contributing artists, including Claudine Hellmuth, Karen Michel, Ted Orland, Suzanne Simanaitis, Richard Salley, Jonathan Talbot, and many, many more."
