Boston Book Arts Presents SHELTER:
a Unique Vision of a Universal Subject Through Artist’s Books
SHELTER focuses attention on a universal subject and one of humanity’s most basic needs – in all its manifestations: the home, the psychology of personal space, current issues in the housing market such as homelessness, the mortgage crisis and loss of historic fabric. 43 artists have been chosen to participate in SHELTER, an exhibition of artist’s books juried by Janine Wong, faculty member in the College of Visual and Performing Arts at UMASS/Dartmouth.
The exhibit is on view at the Wedeman Gallery at Lasell College in Newton, MA from April 10th to April 22nd. The public is cordially invited to attend the opening reception to be held on Thursday April 10th from 4pm to 7pm.
The gallery is located in the Yamawaki Arts & Cultural Center at 49 Myrtle Avenue on the corner of Grove Street in Newton. The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday - Sunday 12 pm - 5 pm.
Come visit me on Sunday April 13, from noon to 5, I will be gallery sitting and would love to see you all.

Although I was very enthusiastic about the color brown this month, life threw a curve ball. Work had layoffs and the bulk of the people let go effected me directly.
Above is how we ended the month of March. The last day of March we drove to NYC and picked up our new family member Mikko. He is brown and rust and such a loveable dog.
The paper quilts are still coming and here is Life in Brown under construction.
and detail. Some more books are being made and will post as soon as they are finished.
