Columbia City Gallery presents two new exhibits Wed., Nov. 17 through January 9, 2011.
“The Book as Art: Hand2Hand” is in the Guest Gallery. Curated by MalPina Chan, the exhibit features handmade books by a host of international and local artists with movable parts intended to be touched by viewers.
Meanwhile, “Contained”, an exhibit featuring gallery member artists and jewelers, is in the Main Gallery. The new themed work is intended to reflect “certain physical and psychological boundaries,” says exhibiting artist Lori Duckstein.
