Welcome: Page by Page

February 20 – April 10, 2016
Gallery Reception: Saturday, February 20, 2016, 5-7pm

Welcome: Page by Page, curated by CPW’s new Executive Director Hannah Frieser, showcases artist books by an international cadre of photographers. The exhibition examines the art form of the small-edition book as a poignant expression of personal vision. CPW invites the viewer to come to the relaxed setting of the newly updated gallery and engage directly with the art. The viewer is encouraged to handle the highly collectible and sometimes fragile books. The books on display range in topic from a courageous self-examination in the face of cancer to the whimsical exploration of disposable cups. Two artists explores dreams, another finds global truth in the exploration of international travel, while yet another mourns the disappearance of her father-in-law.

The exhibition includes New York State artists Niki Berg, Anna Leigh Clem, Michael Bogdanffy-Kriegh, Scott McCarney, Raymond Meeks, Qiana Mestrich, and Keith Smith. Other artists range from Ekaterina Anokhina (Russia), Antic-Ham (Korea), Joshua Deaner (US), Erika Diettes (Colombia), Susan kae Grant (US), Lauren Henkin (US), Ron Jude (US), Ferit Kuyas (Switzerland), Nate Larson (US), Diana Matar (UK), Kevin Miyazaki (US), Carlos Javier Ortiz (US), Marni Shindelman (US), Francis Van Maele (Ireland), Wan-Gyo Yi (Korea), and Philip Zimmermann (US).
