The Book as Art

April 2 – May 2, 2004

Timm_copy1The Bone Folders’ Guild was founded in February 2001 as a network of regional book artists who learn from, support and encourage each other artistically. As a group, they frequently challenge each other to produce artist books based on themes. Examples of these artist books will be on display.

Also on display is “If Death Were a Woman Interpreted,” the collaborative project between the Bone Folders’ Guild and Ellen Kort, Wisconsin’s Poet Laureate. With Kort’s permission, the artists of the Bone Folders’ Guild created the artists’ books as expressions of their connection to her poem.

The participating artists of the Bone Folders’ Guild are Suzanne Berland, Carol Chase Bjerke, Susan Carlson, Nancee Wipperfurth Killoran, Katherine Engen Malkasian, Tricia Schriefer, Karen Timm and Marilyn Wedberg.

Curated by Carol Chase Bjerke and Karen Timm.
