Whether you’re a book lover, an art lover, or both, you should check out Into the Fold at ARTicles Art Gallery in St. Pete.
Co-Curated by Bridget Elmer (Ringling) and Robin Perry Dana, the exhibition is a survey of the contemporary field of book art, with a focus on collaborative editions produced in the state of Florida. The exhibition lasts through Jan. 6.
“From historic woodcuts and previously unpublished manuscripts to laser cut bindings and experimental structures, the work in this exhibition expands our understanding of the book as an art form and celebrates the artists working in our region,” notes the ARTicles website. “Featured programs include the Coffey Residency for Book Arts (University of Florida), the Letterpress and Book Arts Center (Ringling College of Art and Design), Small Craft Advisory Press (Florida State University), and the Tampa Book Art Studio (University of Tampa).”
ARTicles is located at 1445 Central Avenue in St. Petersburg.
