The exhibit presents ten artists’ take on book arts and assemblage: John Simpkins, who paints contemporary allegories in a ghost town at the edge of Oregon’s Alvord Desert; Poppy Dully, who draws from cinema and literature for the monotypes she integrates with vintage books; master printer Katherine Kuehn, who founded Salient Seedling Press and whose work often references poetry and literature, whether she be using paper and ink or fabric and thread; Bill Dean, who haunts garage sales and intuitively combines cast-off fragments from other lives lived; Barbara Tetenbaum, who founded Triangular Press and whose books explore the act of reading; Anna Daedalus, whose arboreal artist’s books allude to rhizomatic intelligence; Kerry Davis, whose wry compositions highlight the interplay between Western morality, capitalist consumer culture and political corruption; Judy Vogland, whose layered constructions tell intimate narratives drawn from collected histories; Marilyn Stablein, whose books and assemblages utilize cultural artifacts and personal archival material, embracing both the playful and meditative; and painter Leo Wayman, whose architectural boxes frame folkloric scenes from an imaginary town.
