I had a piece in this exhibit – I made a sculpture “book” of fabric for my Marie Antoinette Project.
SECOND ANNUAL ALTERED BOOK SHOW/SILENT AUCTION
150 outstanding book art works are on display in this eclectic, highly creative show, full of whimsy and humor, balanced by some serious art work that will knock your socks off!
This is a show you don’t want to miss. Opens Saturday, April 16 with a talk by Donna Seager at 4pm. Reception follows 5-7pm. Show runs through May 21.
Using old discarded library books destined for the dump, these 150 Bay Area artists have produced an outstanding collection of “book art objects” including collage, mixed media, handmade artist books, book sculpture, jewelry, book boxes, hanging mobiles, and “altered books.”
This is a fundraiser to support MarinMOCA. All works are offered in an on-going, 5-week long SILENT AUCTION BEGINNING April 16 and ending on May 21 with a live auction closing party.
All works are donated by the artists. 100% of the proceeds go to help MarinMOCA meet a $50,000 challenge grant.
PLEASE COME. HELP US MEET THE CHALLENGE.
YOU WILL LOVE THESE ARTWORKS! EACH IS A TREASURE . . . THESE ARTISTS OUTDID THEMSELVES
