January 22nd, Denton, TX: Opening Reception & Lecture for “Seductive Alchemy: Books by Artists “

Texas Woman’s University
Seductive Alchemy: Books By Artists
Opening Reception Tuesday, January 22, 2013 5:00-6:00 pm
Lecture by the curator Ruth Rogers, 4:00-5:00 pm

“In this exhibition, I have arranged the works in thematic ‘families’ as a way of emphasizing how shared creative inspiration can lead to such enormously varied expression in the finished piece. Like different pitches in a chorus, they enhance each other’s voice by being near one another. I have sought to choose books that are a balanced orchestration of all their elements, communicating on many levels – from nuanced color to unexpected touch to layered or visual text. Take time to let them unfold slowly, and read them not only with your eyes, but with your esprit, and all of your senses.” – Ruth R. Rogers, Curator of Special Collections, Wellesley College

The exhibition will be up, January 21 to February 15, 2013.

East & West Galleries / Department of Visual Arts
Lecture by Ruth Rogers: January 22, 4:00-5:00 pm / TWU Denton Campus, Ann Stuart Science Complex Lecture Hall (ASSC 259) [campus map]
