art about or involving books


By Community and Ptarmigan Arts Artists


Ptarmigan Arts Back Room Gallery is excited to announce the new show for April entitled By the Book.

Artists from the community were invited to participate in this show along with our own member artists.  The invitation included information concerning the value of the written word in hard copy that has diminished very little.  Even with the internet, there has been a resurgence of and continued popularity of hard copy books.  Small book stores are thriving.

So the request went out to artists for interpretations (painting, drawing, or sculpture) of their favorite book or author or a book made from scratch or deconstructed books (made into a collage or sculpture).  The community artists’ response was very much appreciated.

The new By the Book show features handmade books and art about or involving books, authors, or the joys of reading.  We will exhibit works by Jenny Stroyek, Desiree Hagen, Mary Huff, and other artists from the community as well as Ptarmigan Arts members.

Please join us during the First Friday reception on April 5th, 5-7 p.m. to celebrate the new By the Book show in our Back Room Gallery.  Refreshments will be served.  All you book lovers, we look forward to seeing you there!
