[BKARTS] Ruth Laxson Exhibition

"IT IS UP TO US IF WE GO ON AS IS: Ruth Laxson's Persistent Muse"  

An exhibition of Ruth Laxson's artist's books and bookmaking process
archives will be on display at the Fleet Library at RISD, 15 Westminster
Street, Providence, RI  from 9 May - 3 July 2008, with an opening
reception Friday, May 9th  from 5 - 7 pm.  Research notes, preliminary
sketches, mock-ups and camera-ready work will be featured along with
many of her books.  Ruth Laxson, an Atlanta, Georgia based artist, has
been making artist's books since the age of 63 and is known for her
quirky visual poetry, playful use of text and image, and her highly
relevant social and political commentaries.  

This exhibition is in conjunction with "Ruth Laxson: Life is a Page",
an exhibition of Ruth's drawings, prints, and sculptures at the Marcia
Wood Gallery in Atlanta, 29 May - 5 July, 2008.  Exhibition catalogs for
each venue are available.
