Reflections Gallery celebrates the art of books
Literature is an art form in and of itself, but more than 20 local exhibitors are bringing new meaning to “literary art” that goes beyond the contents of the book, the illustrations, and the cover.
Described as a “fine art show celebrating books and their readers,” Reflections Gallery’s “Literary Art Show” features “works of literary artistry in a fantastic array of mixed media, sculptural, fine art and more.” Each piece also uses books as the medium or theme.
The exhibit opens on Aug. 28 with a reception from 4-7 p.m., and runs through Oct. 23.
Reflections Gallery is also included in the Gallery Hop this year on Sept. 6 from 2-8 p.m. Tying in with the works exhibited in the show, there will be an Altered Book Workshop led by Jackie Cory during the Hop from 2-5 p.m.
The workshop, designed to be an introduction to altered books and how to create your own, costs $45 plus a $10 materials fee per person. The class is available for artists of all levels and registration and a required supply list is available online.
