Beyond Words at the Foothills Art Center
Two Hands Paperie is proud to announce a collaboration with the Foothills Art Center in downtown Golden. For nearly 50 years, the FAC has supported the arts in Colorado. The Center is a non-profit organization and currently holds exhibitions (such as last year’s Toulouse Lautrec exhibit) and promotes art education through their classes and events.
Now through March 22, the Foothills Art Center will exhibit Beyond Words: Contemporary Book Art. The exhibit is juried by Alicia Bailey from Abecedarian Gallery in Denver and will feature a wide variety of book inspired art pieces. In addition to the hand selected portion of the show, the FAC has invited several book artists to exhibit as well, including Brian Dettmer, Monique Lallier, Adele Outteridge, Susan Porteous, and Claire Van Vliet. The FAC is also showing Alicia Bailey’s work: Box and Wall Works in the adjacent Community Gallery. Bailey’s show will run through March 6th, and you can RSVP here to attend her lecture “Hands on Artists’ Books” on Sunday, March 8th at the Foothills Art Center.
To support these two wonderful exhibits, Two Hands Paperie is offering a pop up shop for the duration of the show. You can expect to see specialty papers from India, Japan, Thailand, and Italy, as well as book binding tools, paper crafting supplies, and exquisite stationery. Please join us in celebrating the book arts, and prepare to be inspired by the talent and creativity this show offers!
