The Art of the Book


Exhibit Details


  • September 9-December 31, 2016
  • Spring River Gallery

Overview


When we think of a book, chances are we imagine an object containing written text, but it is also a versatile and often personal art form. The Art of the Book explores the diverse world of contemporary book arts in New Mexico, and features work from around the state. From traditional codices to handmade dresses and freestanding sculpture, the pieces on view in this eclectic exhibit celebrate the book as both form and idea.
