Amy Pirkle, “Gravity’s Light Grip,” 2007

KBAC Gallery, May 4-25, 2012
Opening Friday, May. 4, 2012, 6 to 9 p.m. during Art Hop

The structure of an accordion book is simple: a long piece of paper is folded into pages that can be read like a book or spread open and displayed like a banner. The works on display in our exhibit The Illustrated Accordion take this form to a new level.

To view entries go to our 2012 Accordion Book page on Flickr.

Artists play with form to create star books, Jacob’s ladders, and books that repeat like a chain of dolls. There are books that are photographic, painted, made of handmade paper, created from found materials, printed with letterpress, woodcuts, etchings, lithographs, or use crayons and markers.

If you have ever asked, “What are Book Arts?” come and see how people from as far away as Europe or as close as the KBAC studio have answered this question.

The Kalamazoo Book Arts Center (KBAC) presents the non-juried exhibition The Illustrated Accordion, in the KBAC Gallery during the May 4 Art Hop and on exhibit until May 25.
