The Book as Art: Illuminated
The annual The Book as Art exhibition presented by the Decatur Arts Alliance is the most intriguing event on their calendar.
Art Books, or Artists’ Books, as they are sometimes called, use the form of book as their structure, function or inspiration. This juried show celebrates the book with a wildly varied collection of inventive and spectacular work that challenges expectations.
Fittingly, the 2017 Book as Art exhibition coincides with the annual Decatur Book Festival. The public is invited to an opening reception Friday, August 25, seven to nine o’clock at The Periodicals Gallery of the Decatur Library
215 Sycamore St., Decatur, Ga.
The exhibition continues through September 29 during library hours with extended hours during the book festival, Saturday, Sept. 2 | 9 am-6 pm, Sunday, Sept. 3 | Noon-5 pm.
Please don’t miss white glove nights, Thursday, Sept. 7 and Sept. 21 | 7-9 pm. We’re putting away the “do not touch” signs. Volunteers will provide participants with white gloves allowing firsthand exploration of the books in the exhibition.
