Announcing Blue Skies Workroom at CURRENT Books
Blue Skies Workroom has been selected to be an exhibitor for the inaugural CURRENT Books book fair, March 31, 2018. I'll be debuting Relative Medium, a project in which I use bookbinding as collecting and as color studies, producing hand-bound books for use as journals, scrapbooks or decorative objects. Relative Medium is inspired in part by Albers' Interactions of Color (of course), Doris Lessings' The Golden Notebook, Agnes Martin, Arlene Shechet's palates, quilts, Alexander Gerard, and even Dieter Roth, not to mention my unabiding love of color and of paper. CURRENT Books will showcase high-quality works by art book publishers, artists, writers, and artist collectives who produce print media including artists' books, monographs, and zines. CURRENT Books will highlight regional makers from Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, and North Carolina, and give them a platform to exhibit and sell their work. The event cultivates awareness of arts-related publishing by featuring the full spectrum of creative production found at the intersection of art and publishing. CURRENT will return to its original neighborhood in Scott’s Addition for the inaugural edition of CURRENT Books on March 31, 2018, in Studio Two Three's special event space.
