Two of my books were included in the Beyond Reading: Books As Art Exhibit at the Suffolk Museum in Suffolk, Virginia. Unknown Ancestry and Miller Pottery Since 1865 were among 70 books from book artists in the U.S. and Canada. The exhibit runs from April 25 - June 7.

Press for Beyond Reading: Books As Art:
"At a Glance" - By: Mark St. John Erickson - May 11 2008
A book is just a book is just a book; if you think about it like most people. Read a little more into these contemporary sculptures.
"Suffolk flips for books" - By: Tracy Agnew - April 19, 2008
Some have words, and some don't. Some resemble conventional books, but most don't. The common thread is that all the books in the "Beyond Reading: Books as Art" exhibit at the Suffolk Museum are handmade.
Forty artists from all over the country submitted works for the exhibit. The Suffolk Museum exhibit runs in conjunction with "The Art of Printmaking" at the Red Thread Studio and "Letter Carriers: The Written Word in Art" at Shooting Star Gallery.
