[BKARTS] More thoughts on exhibiting

Dear Friends

After yesterday's post on the wonderfulness of handling artists' books, I feel I do have to reveal that I do not always follow that policy with my own works. When I exhibit work from the Spirit Book Series, I usually exhibit it as sculpture and request that it not be handled. Such was the case when I exhibited the entire Spirit Book Series last fall at Regis College. What we did do was schedule a Gallery Talk and Hands-on Viewing on a Sunday afternoon. After I gave a short talk about the work, white gloves were handed out and people had a chance to handle the books. About fifty people came and all seemed moved by the experience. Since not every exhibition situation allows for handling the books, having a one-time event that allows people to do so might be a good compromise.

in good spirit
