The Artery is pleased to present “C O N T E N T,” the first artist book exhibit of its kind in Davis. This juried artist book exhibit showcases both local and nationwide artists, extending from April 2 through May 1. The show was conceived by Adele Shaw, who taught bookbinding classes in Davis for 6 years. Adele and Nikki Thompson of Deconstructed Artichoke Press shared the judging duties. From 120 entries, they chose 45 books based on excellence in craftsmanship, experimentation in development of the physical book and unique content.
These artists expressed their viewpoints and challenged the idea, content and structure of the traditional book.
In addition to the juried entries, three invited artists will show their exceptional creations. San Francisco artist, Ward Schumaker, presents his book, “Catalog”, which is a one-of-a-kind hand-painted book. Another San Francisco artist, Paul Madonna, will show the evolution of his limited edition illustrated novel “Close Enough for the Angels.” Special guest juror, Nikki Thompson, also contributed her newest book, “To Vote As We Work.”
