New Work: Harvest Home

I am so excited to announce that my new book assemblage: Harvest Home will be featured in a new books arts show at the Chandler Art Center in Randolph, VT called Turning Leaves.

I have been playing with some ideas of how to marry some of the new techniques I have been using with my old assemblage process. The outcome is this new book sculpture: Harvest Home. Influenced by the research I have been doing with old houses and the stories abandoned homesteads carry with them. This piece incorporates 7 found photographs given to me by a local historian of a family that resided in Williston, VT in the late 19th/early 20th century.

The show opens on Sunday with a reception and artist talk.

Turning Leaves: New Directions in Book Arts
Chandler Gallery, Randolph, VT
23 September – 10 November 2012
Reception with Artists’ Talk 4 – 6:30 PM 

I will also be showing Hope Blossoms: which is another mixed media book assemblage. This piece recently took 2nd place in the Juried show Books Unbound vol. 2 at the Artistree Gallery in Woodstock, VT.
