Gallery Show - Handmade Books

The first annual Homewood Arts Festival took place on Saturday, October 2, 1999, in the Sheridan Avenue Community Garden and Park. Two hundred people from the neighborhood gathered to hear musicians and poets, and about forty five people...children and adults...created hand made books with the help of community artists Janice Lee Porter (artist), Anthony Porter (writer) and George Roberts (book binder). These hand made books, in both concertina and Japanese style bindings, will be on display at the Homewood Studios Gallery for two weeks in January. Two neighborhood photographers, Bill Cottman and Earcie Allen, documented the event and their photographs will be part of the gallery presentation.
