Last month Bill McDowell was in our studio printing out his show and helping us hang it. We had two openings, one in conjunction with the Book Art’s Symposium at VSW (Visual Studies Workshop) on Thursday, July 1st, night and Bill McDowell’s opening Ashes In The Night Sky in Gallery Kunstler for First Friday on Friday night, July 2nd. Elisabeth Tonnard, a book artist, also had her work up in the Rochester Pin Up gallery showcasing some of her bookwork. Here are some images from printing, hanging and the actual events.
