[BKARTS] Flag Book Workshop June 4, Columbus, OH Area

Karen Hanmer will offer a Flag Book workshop Saturday, June 4 from
9:30am to 3:30pm at the Dublin Arts Center, Dublin Ohio. All Shook Up:
Layering Text and Image in the Flag Book Structure will show
participants a unique book structure that can accommodate several
complementary or contrasting narratives and images in one small book.
The flag book is an interesting way to combine poetry, personal
writings, photographs or other artwork into a handmade book. Several of
the artist’s flag books, seen in the concurrent gallery exhibition, will
provide ideas and inspiration. Call (614) 889-7444 for details or to
register. Cost for the workshop is $35 for members and $40 for non-members.

Registration deadline Friday May 27.

All Shook Up: Playful Books
June 1 - July 23, 2005

Opening Reception Wednesday, June 1, from 5:00 to 7:30pm

Karen Hanmer’s handmade books tell stories as nostalgic as those of
childhood memories, family stories, and a loved one’s belongings, to the
modern-day mundanity of punch cards and mile-long to-do lists.

Hanmer designs her books to be interactive, and selects materials and
methods of construction to elicit thoughts and emotions from the viewer.
Exploiting the properties of weight, texture, opacity and sound, and the
physical actions one must take to operate the book, Hanmer underscores
the subject and meaning of her intricate constructions.
