Sixth Annual Book Arts Series: Lecture
Artists long have altered books — whether cutting out portions of an existing book or pasting in new elements –– in order to manipulate the original text and images to make a strong point, raise an issue’s awareness, or for other reasons. In this talk, one artist will discuss the development of her altered books that are an homage to her past relationships and how those relationships shaped who she is as an adult. As a whole, her books, which make up a series entitled A Chronicle of Lovers, represent an important part of her autobiography and a larger social inquiry into what separates love, sex and romance for a contemporary woman.
The Book Arts Series has grown to become a wonderful, annual event here in Morristown. There is a reasonable fee for the workshops thanks to generous, private support, but seating is limited so please register early to secure a seat. Refreshments will be provided for each session beginning 30 minutes prior to the start time listed above (please note the lecture this year is on a Thursday evening). For more information, please call 973-538-6161 or e-mail email@example.com.
This program is supported through funding from the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.
