From February 14 - March 14, the Calvin College Department of Art and Art History is proud to present "Ancient Grains," an exhibition of handmade artist books at the (106) South Division Gallery.
During Calvin College's three-week January Interim, students in professor Anna Greidanus' class immersed themselves in the art of handmade artist books. Entitled "Folio, Image, Space, Text and Time," the course helped students acquire various binding techniques and allowed them to explore handmade books as an art form. The result is a collection of one-of-a-kind artist books with a captivating range of visual and conceptual considerations.
The artists are: Peter Cahill, Vikki Davis, Lauren Farris, Julia Gho, Annemaria Groenhout, Sujin Kwon, Linnea McLaughlin, G-Rina Roquemore, Maria Smilde, with guest artists Professor Anna Greidanus, Sara Bakker, Sasha Saur, Jordan Van De Walker, and local bookbinder Vernon Wiering of Wiering Books.
