[BKARTS] Artists' books exhibit Kettering, Ohio



Rosewood Gallery in Kettering, Ohio, is pleased to present the work of
Karen Hanmer, of Glenview, IL. The exhibit runs from August 8 through
September 2, 2005; it is free and open to the public.

Karen Hanmer has a degree in Economics from Northwestern University, but
she has been pulled into the world of paper and bookbinding, studying at
the Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts and with
several Chicago photographers and bookbinders.  Her work is included in
public and private collections ranging from The Museum of Modern Art to
the University of Washington to Graceland. She lectures and teaches
workshops for college and high school students, adults, and
intergenerational groups.  The content of her work deals with images and
memories.  Some of the titles and topics Hanmer has addressed in her
pieces include Secrets of Flight (quotes by and archival images of the
Wright Brothers experiences), Even Before You Left the Farm (photographs
of a girl from her birth on a farm to her adult suburban family life),
and Famopily (an interactive, ready-to-play, board game, consisting of
family scrapbook images and game cards collected by moving about the
board. The cards contain recollections about growing up in the 1960s.)

Rosewood Gallery is open Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 9 pm; Friday,
8 am to 6 pm; and Saturday, 9 am to 3 pm.  The Rosewood Gallery is
programmed through the City of Kettering Parks, Recreation and Cultural
Arts Department, with support from the Kettering Arts Council and the
Ohio Arts Council.  The Gallery is located in Rosewood Arts Centre, 2655
Olson Drive, Kettering, Ohio.  For more information call (937) 296-0294,
