Homes for Ideas: a book arts show
Opening Reception: Friday, June 1, 2007 from 6-9 pm
Rock Paper Scissors gallery in Downtown Oakland
2278 Telegraph Avenue
I'm participating in a whole bunch of shows this weekend, which as far as I'm concerned is the official beginning of summer.
The theme of the Homes for Ideas show is book arts (yay!), especially ones that can be handled, so the installation will largely be designed around a cozy space with cushions and bookshelves where zines and books can be perused at one's leisure. I have three (count'em, THREE) arty books that will be on display at the RPS hootenanny.
The opening reception is part of a rather messy and convivial monthly gathering known as ART MURMUR--a collective opening of galleries downtown where everyone gets to check out other people's work and talk trash while bumping the streets between Telegraph, Grand, and Broadway.
Also on the same night, 21 Grand (at 416 25th Street at Broadway) is holding their annual No Art Over $100 benefit sale, and I have two lino /wood block prints in that show for sale as well. So screech down to 21 Grand and support them thar gallery too. I'm a donor, why not you?
Opening the very next day is the brand spankin new RHYTHMIX CULTURAL WORKS arts center in Alameda, with its own book arts bookstore known as Another Room. Free! All Day! I'll be volunteering the book gallery, if you need a book demo, or a hug or something. http://www.rhythmix.org/
Yours, till ribbons get seasick riding on permanent waves...
