T-BAG (Thursday Book Arts Gathering) is a group of Portland-area book artists, who meet the third Thursday of each month. It's an opportunity to meet other book artists, see their studios and their work. Everyone is invited to join us for this casual monthly event. Feel free to bring some of your own recent work (completed or in progress), to share with the group as this is also a good opportunity to show off and get valuable feedback. There are no minutes, agendas or dues, just great company and art. All who work with books or in the book arts are invited.
This month 23 Sandy is hosting the group in the gallery. We’ll meet at 6:30 pm on Thursday, December 17, 2009. (We will get back to our usual 7:00 pm start time in January!) The current exhibit is The Assignment, a juried show organized in conjunction with the College Book Art Association (CBAA). It’s a chance not only to see some great books, but also to feed your brain with the assignments, parameters and jumping-off places that inspired them. We also want to see what you've been up to, so please bring your own work and ideas to share with the group.23 Sandy Gallery is at 623 NE 23rd Ave, three doors north of Sandy Boulevard.
