ArchiTEXTure: Reinventing the BookSat Apr 28, 2007 Sat Aug 18, 2007
Location: Englewood Civic Center
The Museum of Outdoor Arts presents ArchiTEXTure: Reinventing the Book, an exhibit of contemporary book arts by six local and national artists: Judy Anderson and Ginny Hoyle, Lonnie Hanzon, Jayne Harnett-Hargrove, Ellen Sollod, and David Zimmer.
The artwork on display does not follow the common perception of a standard “book.” An entire scope of artistic thought is articulated through the presentation of ArchiTEXTure. Layers of text, drawing and painting, film, paper, and found objects express the artists’ thematic visions.
The artists show a connection between imagination and reality, whether it is through a bleak graphic landscape or a 3D light box. These books are a vibrant reflection of the creative mind and its ability to design and build a narrative or dialogue through a multimedia vision. The artists featured in ArchiTEXTure are writers, artists, or both, but all are exceptional storytellers.
