[BKARTS] Book Artist in New Mexico



Scott McCarney will give an Artist's Talk at New Mexico State University in
Las Cruces, New Mexico

Book Artist Scott McCarney will be visiting the NMSU Art Department Tuesday,
February 10 to present and discuss his work with students and the community.
Based in Rochester, New York, McCarney has received numerous honors and
awards, including a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. His work
has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, Yale
University, and around the world.

With a background in design and photography, McCarney focuses his work in
the Artist's Book tradition. His bookwork explores the display of
information through a variety of traditional and invented forms that refer
to the book as a cultural conveyor of ideas. Through use of outdated books
found in thrift shops and discarded from libraries, McCarney creates art
ranging from one-of-a-kind art books, to editioned books, to sculptural
installation pieces. His work shows books as vessels which represent the
collection of knowledge, often made obsolete by the ravage of time, and the
advancement of modern communication. McCarney also focuses on themes based
on personal experience and political expression.

Scott McCarney will give a Visiting Artist lecture on Tuesday, February 10
at 6:00 PM at the New Mexico University Art Department, Williams Hall, Room
212 (corner of Solano and University.) This event is open to the general
public.
