Place: a travelling exhibition of artists’ books – Grenfell Art Gallery Exhibition

Tue July 30 - Sun September 8

Free admission

Artists’ Books, or Book Works as they are also referred to, are part of most artists’ vocabulary, either as drawings bound together, illustrated diaries or a response to a place, time, political or historical event, or personal emotion.

Avril Makula and Liz Jeneid, the curators of this exhibition, are both involved in the making of books. Avril is a book designer and maker of unique books who explores the book as art using typography, geometry and colour as content. Liz is a printmaker who has experimented with different approaches, combining various techniques in the bookmaking process. Liz also pioneered a bookmaking course at UOW Faculty of Creative Arts.

PLACE brings together 38 book artists from NSW, ACT, Victoria and Queensland. Each artist has explored the theme of place in their work, whether a physical location or a place of their imagination. The books vary in size, content and technique, and form an extraordinary collection of books that is intended to delight and intrigue the viewer.
