Three Exhibitions~ All for the Love of Books! June 12 through July 25. Free Gallery Talk with Mary Austin July 19, 2014, 3 PM. Free
What is a book? Where is it’s future? The exhibitions engage us in in asking and answering these questions. BIBLIOPHORIA III ~ A Juried Exhibition ~ in the Galletta Gallery Juror Mary Austin, Co-founder of the San Francisco Center for the Book
Join us for this beautiful exhibit of 61 artworks celebrating the book. Catherine Devriese, SebArts curator, says, “We see the book as a point of departure and encouraged innovative approaches for the entries.” The exhibit includes handmade artist books; traditional bookmaking methods; unconventional structures, sculptural, and monumental; book-like objects in which the primary interest, or emphasis, is visual rather than textual; altered books; homage to the book.

BOUND TOGETHER ~ Tablet to Tablet ~ in Gallery 2 A timeline of book arts, from cave paintings and cuneiform incised clay tablets through digital tablets. The exhibition includes historic prints from the collection of artist Rik Olson — beginning with a hand-lettered manuscript page from the 1300s, wood engravings and letterpress printing from the 1400s Gutenberg era through the 1900s, and contemporary work of illustrators and printmakers, along with books, displays of process and materials.
