Bethel Historical Society to host Salisbury Book Artists
The Bethel Historical Society will host the Salisbury Book Artists in April and May. They are a collective that uses nontraditional materials and media to create books of various shapes, sizes and designs. What do accordions, bone folders, recycling materials, clay tablets, paint, handmade paper and cropadile punches have in common? These are forms, techniques or equipment used by the artists, teachers and professional women of the Salisbury Book Artists to create artist's books.
Continuing a long tradition of book art that started with clay tablets and papyrus scrolls, exhibiting members Lisa Fritts, Martha Grahm, Barbara Israel, Bonnie Lavish, Victoria Noonan, Barbara Schultz and Clytie Taylor meet each month to share ideas and new books, and experiment with new techniques.
Previously, the Salisbury Book Artists have exhibited at the Salisbury University’s Atrium Gallery, Cambridge Main Street Gallery and The Art Institute and Gallery. They have also been hosted at Fruitland Elementary School and Poplar Hill Mansion. All are invited to come and see this exhibit and learn about the various techniques.
The museum will be open from 2 to 4 p.m., Sundays April 26, May 10 and May 17, at 312 First St., Bethel. For more information, call 302-858-3840.
