Ex Libris: Altered Books
Exhibition of recycled and transformed books by Sparksartists and friends
9 December 2017 – 24 February 2018
Altered books are an old method of recycling. Put books in the hands of artists from many disciplines and it becomes a new art form. The book becomes a springboard for new ideas and images.
In this exhibition 24 Artists have respectfully recycled books Ex Libris (Latin: out of the books or library).
Sparksartists, the organisers, have won awards for promoting visual arts participation within their community. Formed in 2001 we have a common commitment to our work as individual visual artists but also have a desire to collaborate and share ideas and experiences in a variety of areas of community arts.
