From Stroud to Bristol
3rd November - 6th December 2009
This exhibition has been assembled from works by staff and students at Stroud College. Over the last few years there has been a growing interest in the production and exhibiting of Artists Books at the college. One person in particular, Helen Smith, has been very influential in the promotion of ideas around the subject.
For most of the students this is a first opportunity to exhibit work.
The work is not themed. The criterion is membership of the staff or student body at Stroud. In this way we have been able to show a diversity of ideas that have come from small beginnings.
We have on view altered books, books that tell a story or describe a journey, collaborative books and concept-based work.
