FROM THE WEST (April 28, 2014 – July 31, 2014) is a show that opened a couple of weeks ago in Chicago at Boreas Fine Art. Their gallery space is at 260 E. Chestnut in the Gold Coast neighborhood, and located between Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive,. Spaceheater Editions has four books represented, two by me (Cruising Altitude and High Tension) plus Keith Smith's String Book and Clif Meador's Book of Doom.
As the gallery description explains: "This exhibition features the work of some of the finest book artists currently working today in the western United States or Canada. Although the works vary considerably, from codices to sculptural objects, they all share the characteristic of fine craftsmanship and, when needed, fine engineering. This exhibition is intended to be a survey of the best work still available for purchase by some of the best working artists in this medium."
The website is very elegant and unlike many other book show websites has numerous images of spreads in the book. Please take a look at http://www.boreasfineart.com/current-exhibition.html .
I hope that you will call the gallery owner, Michael Thompson, for an appointment if you are in the Chicago area. He has a very fine selection of artists' books and publications on sale there in addition to the works in the show.
