Opening Reception: Rare Beauty

The opening reception celebrating Rare Beauty: Contemporary Visions in Book Arts, a group exhibition featuring the work of six distinguished printmakers and book artists, in the gallery from January 17 through February 19, 2012.

Rare Beauty showcased the work of the 2011/2012 Georgette and Richard Koopman Distinguished Chairs in the printmaking department at the Hartford Art School: Steven Daiber, Pati Scobey, and Barb Tetenbaum, as well as three invited guest artists: Julie Chen, Kathy Kuehn, and Wilber H. Schilling.

The exhibition comprised a diverse sampling of handmade books in all forms, demonstrating the incredible scope of the craft. From traditional, recognizable book forms to interactive boxes, text-wrapped jawbones, embroidered scrolls, and installations; the books in this exhibition stretch all familiar boundaries of what defines a “book”.

A panel discussion followed by a public reception was held on February 9, 2012. The panel included all six artists in the exhibition with moderation by Ruth Rogers, curator of special collections at Wellesley College.

Rare Beauty was curated by Jenni Freidman, Jim Lee, and John Willis, with arrangement and installation by Lisa Gaumond.
