The Authority of the Book show at Turchin Fine Arts Center, in Boone NC

On Monday, we returned from Boone NC after attending the opening reception of a show that Clif Meador and I co-curated on innovative photobook publishers, and a taking part in a related panel discussion. The show, called The Authority of the Book, was proposed by Mary Anne Redding, head curator at the Turchin. The gallery is part of Appalachian State University, which is itself part of the University of North Carolina State higher education system.

Here are some photos from the show and the opening reception.

The show was set up like a rather cozy living room, an inviting place to sit down and spend some time with the books.

This is the statement as one enters the main gallery.

A small part of the exhbition was located in the main elevator for the Turchin Fine Arts Center.
The opening reception was crowded.
