David P. Gieske, Artist and Audience, Altered Book

KBAC Gallery, June 5 – July 31
Opens During Art Hop, June 5, 2015, 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Altered Books – Altered Worlds will focus on books, usually so familiar and predictable, in different and re-imagined forms. All media, variations, and interpretations of altered books will be accepted and included in the exhibition.

Altered Books – Altered Worlds will run concurrently with Adaptation: Transforming Books into Art at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. This juried exhibition will showcase the work of 17 internationally known artists in the altered book genre.

These two unique and inspiring exhibitions will allow visitors to see the work of an exceptionally large and talented group of book artists.

wk_summerheaderSummer 2015 Workshops

We’re excited to present the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center summer 2015 class schedule for adults. There’s nothing like getting your hands in a vat of cool water and pulp for a papermaking class, playing with color creating monotypes, working on a new book structure or creating a poster with cool type on the Vandercook. No matter your interests, we’ve got something for you! Don’t forget to use our easy, online registration.
