TREADWELL  Bright Hill Press's First Juried Book Arts Exhibit will open
on Saturday, October 5, with a free reception from 3 - 5 p.m, in Bright Hill
Center's Word and Image Gallery, 94 Church Street, Treadwell.  The exhibit
will remain at the Center through October 27; hours are Tuesday through
Friday, 1- 4 p.m., and Saturday, 1 - 4 p.m.
        The exhibit, 45 artists' books and fine bindings by book artists from
Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois,
Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio,
Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington, Texas, and Argentina, was juried by
Richard Minsky and Peter Verheyen.
        Richard Minsky created the acclaimed nonprofit Center for Book Arts
(http://www.centerforbookarts.org) in New York City in 1974; he has been
both thrilling and upsetting the bookbinding establishment since 1973, when,
as a 25-year-old disciple of Brown University's bookbinding classicist Daniel
Gibson Knowlton, he suddenly "started going in a different direction."  Since
1993 he has been working on a series about The Bill of Rights, which was
recently exhibited in New York City and at Oberlin College in Ohio. Peter
Verheyen, Preservation and Access Librarian at Syracuse University, began
his involvement in the book arts while a work-study student in the
conservation lab at the Johns Hopkins University Library.  He is past
Exhibitions Chair for the Guild of Book Works, and his binding have been
exhibited widely at the Guild, its regional chapters, and in invitational and
solo exhibitions. He is the founder of Book_Arts-L and the Book Arts Web,
http://www.philobiblon.com.
                Bright Hill Press's 2002 programs are made possible, in part, by
the New York State Council on the Arts, the A. Lindsay and Olive B.
O'Connor Foundation, the Walter Rich Charitable Foundation, the Otis A.
Thompson Foundation, the Dewar Foundation, the A. C. Molinari
Foundation, the Merrill Family Foundation, area businesses, and its members
and friends. For more information on the organization and its programs,
