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.
