Re: [BKARTS] Bright Hill Center Opens 4th Annual North American Juried Book Arts Exhibit Tomorrow



Don't forget:

BRIGHT HILL CENTER's WORD & IMAGE GALLERY TO 
PRESENT FOURTH ANNUAL NORTH AMERICAN 
JURIED BOOK ARTS EXHIBIT 


- TREADWELL, NY --- Bright Hill Center's Word & Image Gallery announces the 
opening reception and exhibit of the Fourth Annual Bright Hill North American Juried 
Book Arts Exhibit, featuring artists' books from throughout the United States and 
Canada. The opening reception will take place on Sunday, October 2, from 3 - 5 
p.m. at the Gallery; the exhibit will remain there through October 29. Gallery hours 
are Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. The Center is located at 94 Church 
Street, Treadwell, one block north of Barlow's General Store, and the reception and 
exhibit are free and open to the public. 
Book artists and educators Edward H. Hutchins of Fleetwood, NY and Bertha 
Rogers of Treadwell selected the 49 books by 41 artists. According to Hutchins, "The 
show sets out to explore how text and image can be presented in a book format. The 
selected volumes wonderfully illustrate, pictures and words are just the starting Much 
more can be added to make a book compelling and exciting. There are elegant 
calligraphy, fine letterpress printing, an appropriate structure, a well-crafted binding, an 
inviting cover, engaging page layouts, unexpected construction materials, as well as a 
generous dose of wit, poignancy, new knowledge, shared experience, heartbreak, and 
wonder. The right combination of these elements creates a work that is to hold and a 
pleasure to experience." Hutchins and Rogers chose, for Best of Show and a 
cash prize of $200, "Down the Rabbit Hole" by Tara Bryan, Fleetrock, 
Newfoundland, Canada, a tunnel book. Second place and a cash prize of $100 
went to Deobrah Phillips Chodoff, Katonah, NY, for "Movable, Removable, 
Immovable."
