I may have mentioned once or twice that I love learning, and I love books. Exhibition 36 is a new release, and one I have on my personal wish list. However, after visiting author Susan Tuttle’s blog, I may have to hold off for a little over a week before ordering it because she’s giving away a free copy!
This is the Amazon.com’s editoral review (published by North Light Books, one of my personal favorites!):
Within the pages of Exhibition 36, readers will enter a virtual art exhibit featuring thirty-six mixed-media artists whose collage, digital, assemblage, altered and repurposed art adorn the walls and pedestals of this unique gallery. The artists are “present” throughout the exhibit, answering questions, sharing their thoughts, talking about their work and offering instruction. The tour is structured to provide insight into the creative process of the artists whose work is on display and the reader will be delighted with the plethora of inspiration, articles, techniques and general visual candy. As a final bonus, many artists featured in the book have contributed imagery as a gift to readers for attending the exhibit to reuse in their own creations.
Possesses great crossover appeal for mixed-media artists of nearly every discipline, including jewelry makers, collage artists and more.
Readers will enter a “virtual tour” featuring art from a variety of contributing artists, including well-known crafters such as Claudine Hellmuth (Collage Discovery Workshop) and Suzanne Simanaitis (Kaleidoscope).
Includes bonus collage imagery sheets for readers to use in their own art.
