[BKARTS] New Show Opens Next Week at 23 Sandy Gallery



ARTIST BOOKS FROM ALASKA TO ARGENTINA AT 23 SANDY GALLERY IN MAY

23 Sandy Gallery is pleased to present *Alex Appella: Where Are You From?
Artist Books Created from Alaska to Argentina*. Alex’s show will run May
1-31.

Alex Appella began binding her original poems and short stories while living
on a boat in Juneau, Alaska. She then took her creations to the streets and
plazas of Latin America as she and husband travelled overland from Alaska to
Costa Rica. Since then, binding has taken the couple to mining camps in
Bolivia; to remote locations near their home in the sierras of Córdoba,
Argentina; and to a number of more conventional venues both in South America
and the US.

For the first time, artist book fans can experience Appella’s books in their
original presentation: as if you had stumbled across them while visiting
their little stand in an outdoor market in Oaxaca, or Omoa, or
Oncativo.  Except
this time, their little stand will be in the 23 Sandy Gallery, in Portland,
Oregon.

Alex Appella (born in Oregon) began bookbinding as a way to share her
writing and collage art while travelling. What began as a temporary solution
within a nomadic lifestyle has turned into a way of life. Alex now writes
and binds from her home in Córdoba, Argentina. Alex’s self-published
artist’s books can be found in numerous private and public collections
throughout the US and beyond.
