“Give Me a Home”. • A few of my favourite things: rust, paper, weathered wood and encaustic medium. • If you are in the Victoria BC area and have a love of books be sure to check out the Art of the Book 2018 exhibition which is on now until August 26th. • Art of the Book is an International juried exhibition of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild and will be traveling across Canada for two years.The traveling exhibition includes books from Canada, USA, England, France, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore. • “Give Me a Home” is a collaborative work with Winnipeg-based artist Sue Gordon. This is one of three sculptural books that memorialize Sue’s family history.  Each cover is made with detritus Gordon collected from the site of her family’s now abandoned farmstead near Moosejaw, Saskatchewan. The time-weathered wood, rusted chains, and textured pages are evocative of memory and loss.  The images inside are etchings, revealing how the prairie land was pioneered and farmed by three generations. • Link in profile for more on this book and for all the dates and venues. • • • • • #artistbook #artistsbook #artistsbooks #art #artofthebook #artist #artistsofinstagram #encaustic #encausticpainting #encausticart #encausticartist #book #bookart #bookarts #bookbinder #bookbinding #shopwag #manitobacraft #minnesotacenterforbookarts #marthastreetstudio #canadianbookbindersandbookartistsguild #groupshow #cbbag #cbbagta #cbbaggta #cbbag_gta #debrafrances #finecraft #mnbookarts #mhfy

“Bow Low”. • If you are in the Victoria BC area and are a lover of books be sure to check out the Art of the Book 2018 exhibition which is on now until August 26th. I’m super excited that I will have the opportunity to see this show in person before we fly home. • Art of the Book is an International juried exhibition of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild and will travel across Canada for the next two years. The traveling exhibition includes books from Canada, USA, England, France, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore. • “Bow Low”is a collaborative work with Winnipeg, Manitoba artist Sue Gordon. • This book is a poem - the whole piece: acid-bitten copper cover, beeswax covered pages, simple verse and the etched images. Together they form an invitation to live life with humility and fullness through difficult circumstances. • Link in profile for more on this book and for all the dates and venues. • • • • • #artistbook #artistsbook #artistsbooks #art #artofthebook #artist #artistsofinstagram #encaustic #encausticpainting #encausticart #encausticartist #book #bookart #bookarts #bookbinder #bookbinding #shopwag #manitobacraft #minnesotacenterforbookarts #marthastreetstudio #canadianbookbindersandbookartistsguild #groupshow #cbbag #cbbagta #cbbaggta #cbbag_gta #debrafrances #finecraft #mnbookarts #mhfy
