An exhibition where artists explore the relationship between words and images is now on display through Sunday, Oct. 30, at the University of Wyoming’s Coe Library.
“Habitat: Artists’ Books” is located on Level 3 in the display case outside of UW Libraries’ Emmett D. Chisum Special Collections.
“Words and images are at the core of books,” says Mark Ritchie, a professor in the UW Department of Visual Arts and curator of the 2022 Laramie County Library book arts exhibition. “I paired artists and writers based on the imagery, themes and sensibilities I had experienced in their writing or artwork. They were asked to explore the theme of ‘habitat’ with simple, single-page broadsides or folded folios. Each pair defined their work parameters and relationship. Most described their interactions as ‘conversations.’”
“Habitat: Artists’ Books” was first on view at Laramie County Library in Cheyenne from June 10-Aug. 21. The exhibition was coordinated and funded by the Laramie County Library System. The exhibition webpage is available at https://lclsonline.org/habitat-artists-books.
