Words/Matter Exhibition

Back in 2009 I was involved with a collaboration with artists Bridgette Guerzon Mills  and Jen Worden. The main idea was to challenge and experiment with our creative skills. I created a handbound, vintage paper book with the theme Contexture. Jen created a series of loose metal pages with the theme Shine. Bridgette created a book with plaster pages with the theme Book of Trees. 

Juts got word that Book of Trees will be part of an exhibition in Chicago at words/matter. Opening 10/3 and running through 10/29, this show highlights artists books. If you are in the area, I hope you are able to stop by.

Head on over to this post on Bridgette's blog, Contemplating the Moon, to see images from every page in her book and to read about her own personal experience with the collaboration.
