Book Arts

Seventh Annual Book Arts Workshop: "Star Books"


Saturday May 3, 2014
10:00 AM
The star book is a surprising sculptural book that can be handheld, arranged into different shapes and even hung like a folding/unfolding star. We will make a colorful personalized creation with paper, low-tech printmaking (using recycled Styrofoam plates and non-toxic ink), other recycled materials, collage, and decorative two and three-dimensional embellishments. Featuring New Jersey book artist and educator Karen Guancione. Fee: $30.00

Karen Guancione has been awarded a Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation Artists and Communities Grant, three New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowships, a Ford Foundation Grant, a Puffin Foundation Grant and an Arts and Culture Exhibition Grant from the Nathan Cummings Foundation. Her work has been exhibited worldwide and is in numerous public and private collections. Her interdisciplinary art includes large scale installations, performance, sculpture, printmaking, papermaking, bookarts and video. She has curated many exhibitions, is an adjunct professor of art at the State University of New York (SUNY Purchase), Montclair State University and Middlesex County Community College and has been a visiting artist and lecturer at Pratt Institute, Rutgers University and numerous schools and institutions in the United States and abroad. For over a decade she has served as artistic director / guest curator of the annual New Jersey Book Arts Symposium and Exhibition. She is the first time recipient of the Erena Rae Award for Art and Social Justice.
