  • Books Undone: the art of altered books
    The Gallery at Penn College,
    Madigan Library
    January 11 - February 28, 2018
    Opening Reception January 18, 4:30 - 6:30 pm

    1 College Avenue
    Williamsport, PA

    Throughout history, books have been read, burned, banned, and collected. Today, books are both valuable and disposable. Contemporary artists hold the history of books – from scrolls (c. 2400 BC) to vegetable-fiber paper (China c. 100 AD) to woodblock printing (Europe, 1418) and the Gutenberg Bible (1456) – in their hands when they choose to transform them into works of art. Reflective artists convert this long revered written communication artifact into a visual communication object – often to great effect. The Gallery at Penn College is pleased to highlight the community of artists working in this important medium and to share the artists’ messages in Books Undone: the art of altered books - an exhibition of altered books, book objects, collages, sculptures, installations, and more. Juror Jason Thompson, founder and president of Rag & Bone Bindery has selected a trio of Sacred Poems. www.gallery.pct.edu

Norm Magnusson, Artist and Independent Curator, has selected ten Hudson Valley artists for this exhibition featuring abstract works that move towards evocation of the physical world and have the power to help us see the world around us through a different lens. Kunstadt's Interlude and Sacred Poem Series are showcased. http://www.woodstockart.org/main-gallery/

  • WORD 2016
    Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art
    February 27 - December 17, 2016
    Peekskill, NY

    HVCCA has a history of exhibitions that feature artists from the international community, some with established careers and stellar reputations as well as those just emerging onto the art stage.  ‘WORD’ is HVCCA’s first open call juried exhibition purposed to highlight talented regional artists who prominently feature ‘a word’ or ‘words’ in their artistic productions.  Some 140 artists applied and 64 artists were selected.  These newer and lesser known works will sit side by side with works of artists such as Beatrice Coron, Dylan Graham (Netherlands), Ann Hamilton (US 1999 Venice Biennale artist), John Mellencamp, Jeffrey Gibson, Job Koelewijn (Netherlands), Laura Kimpton (SLS Miami, Burning Man, California) and Robert Indiana.

    Words have appeared historically as artistic forms in illuminated manuscripts, in Arabic text on the walls of mosques and in its mosaic murals, on Chinese calligraphic scrolls.  ‘Word’ as contemporary art form has been popularized by contemporary artists Ruche, Wiener, Kruger and Holzer, Anastasi and others.  Words have the power to hurt and to heal, to be offered as prayer or diatribe. Some of these ‘word’ facets will be explored in the works presented at the HVCCA.  Education programs, word performances and readings by renowned poets Gerald Stern and Cindy Beer Fouhy, will enhance the visual exhibition at the HVCCA.

  • Between the Covers: Altered Books in Contemporary Art
    Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science & Art
    February 5 - June 6, 2016

    Scranton, PA

    For the twenty four artists in Between the Covers: Altered Books in Contemporary Art, found and mass-produced books are their expressive medium of choice. Viewing themselves as collaborators with their source material, they transform them into sculptures and installations of all sizes and shapes. Beyond exploiting physical and sensorial properties, the artists improvise with content, both text and image. In answer to the looming demise of the printed publication, the exhibition argues that in giving books new life as unique works of art, the artists are opening up fresh possibilities of meaning and relevance. Between the Covers is exclusive to the Everhart Museum, guest curated by Sarah Tanguy, who has selected a grouping from Kunstadt's Sacred Poem Series. http://everhart-museum.org/exhibitions/current-exhibitions/   NPR archived interview recording with curatorial asssitant, Nicole Fleck: http://www.wvia.org/radio/local/artscene/

    , the seventh International Distinguished Artists Symposium and Exhibition at the Joseloff Gallery, Hartford Art School is a celebration of the renaissance of cut paper as an artistic expression.  Paper, a ubiquitous medium, is transformed by the simple acts of cutting, removing, folding, and reassembling to create something far beyond its humble beginnings. Representative works are included from Kunstadt's Old Testament Series - a 1904 family heirloom Bible, which Kunstadt has refashioned into triangular and cubic sculptures evocative of Jung's sacred geometries. http://www.joseloffgallery.org/on-view/
