We are very pleased to present EcoEditions, an international juried exhibition of contemporary artist books focusing on the environment. EcoEditions proves that books can save the world. Artist books raise consciousness, create awareness and change thinking. We invited book artists to use their powers as stewards of the earth to report on the state of our environment, ecology, sustainability, pollution, climate, recycling and our planet in general.
EcoEditions features the work of the following artists: Cynthia Back, Alicia Bailey, Kate Barber, Brea Black, Servane Briand, Patty Bruce, Lark Burkhart, Mary-Ellen Campbell, List Cara, Lin Charlston, Guylaine Couture, Anne Covell, Marian Crane, Fiona Dempster, Mari Eckstein Gower Leilei Guo, Elise Guidoux, Lisa Isley, Diane Jacobs, Jill Kambs, Karen Koshgarian, Dorothy Krause, Bryan Kring, Laura Ladendorf, Lise Melhorn-Boe, Barbara Milman, Leah Oates, Lisa Onstad, Wendy Partridge, Linda Piacentini-Yaple, Dr. Bob Pliny, Susan Reynolds, Julie Russell-Steuart, Rocco Scary, Wilber Schilling, Abigail Schultz, Andie Thrams, Mary Uthuppuru, Barb Van Dusen, Elsi Vassdal Ellis and Shu-Ju Wang.
Mark your calendar for an artists reception for EcoEditions on Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Several artists will be in attendance, including Fiona Dempster, who will be here all the way from Australia and Abigail Schultz all the way from Hawaii!
This exhibition was juried by Cara List, the Art and Art History Librarian at the University of Oregon Architecture and Allied Arts Library. As the curator of the Artists’ Book Collection, she teaches extensively with artists’ books. Cara received her MFA in painting from the School of Visual Arts in New York, where she worked and exhibited for a number of years, before getting a Masters in Information Science at the University of Michigan.
