Books of Course

Exhibition Dates :: Wednesday, April 5 thru June 11, 2017

Exhibition Catalog :: The exhibition catalog is available here...

Location :: San Francisco Center for the Book, 375 Rhode Island Street, San Francisco

From the teaching collections of Macy Chadwick, Julie Chen, Betsy Davids, Alisa Golden, Michael Henninger, Charles Hobson, Nance O'Banion, Karen Sjoholm, and Kathleen Walkup

Drawing from their collections, nine Bay Area teachers have chosen books, objects, and creative assignments from their libraries to share in one exhibition. Presenting different teaching approaches through their selections, these educators shed light on their philosophies as well as their passions. Individual collections are reflected in different themes, for example: as a historical timeline; top ten student favorites; and books with an emphasis on language and culture. Over forty artists' works are included, each with a unique vision, and including a wide variety of processes and materials. From a book with intentionally bad printing to a book made to resemble a purse, each work serves as a gem to contemplate, with the hope that you, too, will be inspired to make books, of course.
