Books become the canvas for contemporary artists in this national juried exhibition. Throughout history, books have been read, burned, banned, and collected. Today, books are both valuable and disposable. Contemporary artists hold the history of books – from scrolls (c. 2400 BC) to vegetable-fiber paper (China c. 100 AD) to woodblock printing (Europe, 1418) and the Gutenberg Bible (1456) – in their hands when they choose to transform them into works of art. The Gallery at Penn College is pleased to highlight the community of artists working in this important medium. Books Undone: the art of altered books includes altered books, book objects, collages, sculptures, installations, and more.
