Artists' Books: From A to Zine

Amherst Street Gallery, 77 Amherst Street
Opening Reception:Wednesday, March 4, 5-7pm

With the continued growth of this tiny and wonderful arm of the art world, and the growing interest in the Intro to Book Arts class at NHIA, as well as the growing Special Collections and resources at the Teti Library, it seems apropos to have an exhibit of artists’ books at this time at NHIA
This exhibit consists of a broad range of artists’ books, from the traditional and fine press world as well as the conceptual and sculptural world.

For the third year running, New Hampshire Institute of Art students’ work will be featured by the Palace Theatre and Opera New Hampshire at the organizations’ production of La Boheme thanks to an ongoing partnership between the college and the nonprofit group focused on bringing professional opera to the Granite State. And for one student – sophomore Alexandra Bye – that means incredible exposure for her creative talents.
