THE RIGHT HANDS AT WORK: ALTERED BOOKS

What happens to a book when it outlives its purpose on the shelf?

If it falls into the right hands, it is transformed into an art object that may or may not resemble its original form. In early 2008 a series of exhibitions throughout the Minneapolis will showcase altered books created by national artists as well as by members of the Twin Cities community. In addition, artists of all ages and abilities will have the opportunity to explore the making of altered books in a variety of workshops scheduled for the fall of 2007.

In conjunction with the Minneapolis Public Library and Minnesota Center for Book Arts, Homewood Studios presents the ALTERED BOOK work of community and family members from North Minneapolis and of public school students from around the city.

Opening Reception - Saturday, January 5th from 6p to 9p
