[BKARTS] BookArts show in Loveladies, NJ

beyondWORDS: BookFest 2009
An exhibition of innovative and engaging art in book form

A wide variety of handcrafted books will be on display at the LBIFAS from 
Thursday, June 11 to Monday, June 29.   This show of regionally, nationally, 
and internationally known book artists allows visitors to see a familiar 
object, a book, re-imagined and re-created in exciting and unfamiliar ways. 
>From more traditional forms to extravagant explosions of color, beyondWORDS: 
BookFest 2009 is sure to please the eyes and the mind. 

The books include traditionally bound volumes, fabric scrolls, unfolding 
paper structures, pop-ups, hand-cast paper pages, fine letterpress printing, 
and dramatic sculptural pieces. There is a book of boxed bugs, and even a 
boat riding the crest of a wave made of handcrafted Scrabble tiles.

Everyone is invited to attend the Artists' reception on Sunday, June 14, 
from 5 to 7 p.m. Workshops that coordinate with the show include: 4-Drawer 
Japanese Box on Saturday, June 13; Secrets of Paper Animation on Saturday, June 
20: and, Basic Book Structures for Artists and Writers on Sunday, June 21.

beyondWORDS: BookFest 2009 is curated by New York bookbinder Carolyn 
Chadwick and Ed Hutchins from Editions, a studio for producing artist book 
multiples in Mount Vernon, New York.   

The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences (LBIF) was 
established in 1948 as a non-profit institution by artist Boris Blai to provide 
arts and educational opportunities for the Long Beach Island community. Blai, 
a sculptor and founding dean of Tyler School of Art, felt that through 
exceptional art classes, exhibitions, and cultural activities, the LBIF could 
provide visitors and residents with opportunities to share and experience 
cultural programs not available elsewhere in the region. Since 1948, the LBIF has 
offered many unique programs with highly accomplished artists and 
performers from New Jersey, New York City, Philadelphia, and across the nation.  
The Mission of the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences is 
to promote the arts and sciences on Long Beach Island and surrounding 
communities by enlightening, educating, and stimulating thought and discussion 
about current trends in the arts and sciences and by providing broad 
educational and cultural programs for all ages.
