The Book as Art

The Book as Art: 21st Century Meets Tradition

Artists’ books take many forms--from handmade and lusciously tactile to linear and informative; abstract and questioning to sculptural and monumental. Artists’ books can be a delight to the eye and a pleasure to the hand – and can introduce us not only to new interpretations of an ancient concept but also to questions and ideas on 21st-century form and format. Artists who observe this world and interpret the idea of the book are the exhibitors in this juried exhibition visually celebrating the book form. The exhibition, presented in conjunction with the Decatur Arts Alliance, introduces a new and exciting visual component to the largest independent book festival in the country, the AJC Decatur Book Festival (Aug. 1 – Sept. 1). Gallery open Mon.-Thurs. 9-7, Fri. 9-5, Sat. 10-3. Artists’ reception: Thursday, Aug. 28, 6-9 pm. The public is invited at no charge.
