[BKARTS] Los Angeles Book Arts Center Holiday Boutique



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 17, 2003

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Book Arts Center, a nonprofit art center
dedicated to the promotion of book and paper arts, will be holding its second
annual holiday boutique.  The sale will take place on Saturday, November 29, from
10 AM to 5 PM at New Roads School in Santa Monica.  New Roads is located at
3131 West Olympic Blvd.  This free event will allow book and paper lovers to
explore these unique art forms up close and personal.

The Los Angeles Book Arts Center is a creative, intellectual and technical
resource for artists, collectors, dealers, curators and all individuals
interested in the book and paper arts.  It is the center's mission to serve as a
network and clearinghouse for information, education and resources. This is being
accomplished through networking, workshops, lectures, publications, exhibitions
and outreach.  Our commitment is to build a strong community as well as to
further individual pursuits in the book and paper arts.

The Los Angeles Book Arts Center (LABAC) was founded in September 2002.  In
October 2002, LABAC held an Inaugural Exhibition of the work of it's members.
The Los Angeles Book Arts Center and the exhibit were featured in an article
on the front page of the Living section of the Los Angeles Times on October 7,
2002.  The Holiday Boutique in December 2002 not only provided a venue for
members to show and sell their work, but also proved to be a great opportunity
for members and book arts enthusiasts to meet and exchange ideas.  LABAC was
highlighted in a Time magazine article on November 11, 2002, about the growing
interest in book art throughout the nation.  Open meetings, hosted lectures,
classes, and continuous online discussion groups all contribute to building a
strong book arts community in Los Angeles. LABAC proudly participated in both the
Los Angeles Times Festival of Books and the West Hollywood Book Fair.  The
Los Angeles Book Arts Center offers the broadest possible range of classes in
the book arts, drawing and calligraphy, paste papers and monoprints, book
structures of all types, cases and boxes, and everything between and beyond.
