opened August 1, 2013 . through July 31, 2014
Alfred Stieglitz opened the Intimate Gallery in 1925, inviting artists, poets and writers to gather and exhibit their works. His own photographs, including the Equivalent series and portraits of Georgia O’Keeffe, reflected both a high craft and personal inner life. Intima Gallery hoped to emulate these traditions with exhibitions honoring the Artist’s relationship to their work, and the viewer’s empathetic response to the art work. As contemporary artists, we often work in more than one media to express emotions and communicate individual experience. Whether utilizing the structure of the book, the hand work involved in the process of pulling prints, or our connection to a moment in time when we click the shutter, our practice is inherently intimate. We hope you enjoyed the Book & Print exhibitions. . .
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 5, 2014, 5-8pm
“Ribboning out…” is an exhibition of fine prints and books. Experience the quiet, abstracted local landscape photography of Steven Gentile and the personal narrative of Mindy Belloff’s artist’s books and print editions, through July 27, celebrating a poetic independence from the expected.
Also on view, an exquisite collectible print of the historic Goddard Declaration of Independence, created by Mindy Belloff with over 7,000 letters set in metal type, one a time, by-hand, and printed letterpress in a limited run. Also see the contemporary edition with inclusive language stating, “all People are created equal.” Happy July 4th!
AN INTRODUCTION TO HANDMADE BOOKS
Do-It-Yourself Bookbinding with Mindy Belloff
Thursday, July 3, 4pm-6:30pm
The Art of the Book begins with the book structure. In this workshop, learn two wonderful sewing techniques to get you started, which you will enjoy repeating from your home or studio: the pamphlet style for folded pages is a perfect binding for poetry chapbooks, art & writing journals; and the Japanese stab binding is ideal for assembling single sheets of artworks, photographs, and writings. Get a glimpse into the world of making artist’s books and jump start a new way of thinking.
