Join us for our last exhibit of 2020, Book Passage, where unwanted books are given a new home in a world where dying books are reborn and venerated. This is new work by award-winning book artists John Sager and Janice Anderson. Anderson weaves complex, exquisite and richly colored mixed media collages from discarded book covers, supporting ephemera and carefully placed related found objects. Sager is an assemblage sculptor who shapes distressed books into evocative, thoughtful and astonishingly elegant constructions.
