“Art of the Book: Process, Product and Community at Asheville BookWorks,” an exhibit of printmaking, binding, paper-making and related processes, opens Wednesday, August 17, at Blowers Gallery in UNC Asheville’s Ramsey Library. The exhibit showcases the work of instructors and students at Asheville BookWorks, a West Asheville studio space and gathering place for those interested in print and book arts.
“Art of the Book” includes sculptural books, journals, one-of-a-kind creations, and BookWorks collaborations, including “Early Autumn” a hand-set limited edition of poems by Coleman Barks which features a reproduction of a 13th century insect scroll screen by Chinese artist Qian Xuan.
