[BKARTS] "Barbara Hodgson: Other Ways of Seeing Books"

Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers is pleased to announce an exhibition of the
work of Barbara Hodgson. "Barbara Hodgson: Other Ways of Seeing Books" will
run from March 6 through April 30, 2008. Please join us for a reception for
the artist on Thursday, April 3, from 6-8pm.
Barbara Hodgson is a writer, book designer and photographer based in
Vancouver, BC.  She is the author and designer of four acclaimed illustrated
novels; each a combination of good storytelling augmented with archival
photographs, antique postcards, and rare engravings. Her non-fiction work
includes her recent publication, Trading in Memories, 2007, an illustrated
diary of her journeys as a world traveler, picking up bits and pieces of
discarded material culture.
Her work has also been published in fine press limited editions by Heavenly
Monkey Press in Vancouver, BC. Out of print titles include Good & Evil in
the Garden and Expressed: Ten Philatelic Fictions. Her most recent work is
The Temperamental Rose and Other Ways of Seeing Color, 2007, with noted
Seattle bookbinder Claudia Cohen. This collaboration began during their
first meeting in the summer of 2006, when they discovered mutual passions
for color wheels and other systems for charting and codifying colors.
For the present exhibition, Hodgson has created a keepsake entitled The
Temperamental Rose: An Experiment with Light. Each copy of the pamphlet is
hand-colored with a selection of lightfast and fugitive watercolors. It is
designed to be exposed to the sun over a period of a year to demonstrate the
effect of light on pigments. The keepsake is available in a signed, limited
edition of sixty copies.
Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers is located in the historic Pioneer Square
district of Seattle, at 208 First Avenue South between Main and Washington
streets.  Shop hours are Monday thru Saturday, 11-6.
