"The Art of the Book" -- An Exhibition Now on View at the Zarrow Center in Downtown Tulsa
On this installment of StudioTulsa, we're talking about an engaging and multi-faceted little art exhibit on view at TU's Zarrow Center for Art and Education (at 124 East Brady Street, in downtown Tulsa) through June 28th. "The Art of the Book" offers more than 20 works that both explore and encapsulate the book as an art form -- from hand-crafted miniature volumes to book-inspired sculptures to re-purposed "altered book" creations. The show draws upon works from the University of Tulsa's McFarlin Library collection as well as a number of different pieces by nationally-recognized book-art artists, and you can learn more about this exhibit (and about other notable shows coming soon to the Zarrow Center's gallery space) at this link. Our guests are Michelle Martin, Associate Professor of Art / Printmaking at TU and the curator of "The Art of the Book," and Milissa Burkart, a Tulsa-based book-art artist who has a few works on display in this exhibit, and who works in the Special Collections Department at McFarlin Library.
