Join us for a reception with the artists of our new juried exhibition, WANDERLUST. Being a holiday weekend, several of our artists are coming from out of town, so it should be a big crowd. Let’s hope for a warm and dry evening so we can party on the front lawn!
On view in the gallery May 27 – July 20, 2016, WANDERLUST, is an international juried exhibition of book art exploring the desire to travel, and the drive to discover and document place.
Wanderlust is a word that can mean many things, but first and foremost it conjures travel, exploration and place. Wanderlust, a German word, made from “wandern,” which means walking, as in to take a walk, and “lust,” desire. It can also mean a strong desire to travel or discover new places. For this exhibition we sought book art that explores the definition of Wanderlust—to explore, travel, inhabit—even if only between the pages.
This exhibition features 56 books by 54 artists including artists from as far away as Mexico, Spain, Norway, Germany, Canada and the UK—all telling stories of near and far. Most of the selected works revolve around a strong sense of place. More than just travelogues we found deep explorations and personal transformations across destinations.
