Tonight WoCA will open its 2nd Annual Juried Artists’ Books Exhibition exploring the diversity within the artist book medium, including both traditional book-binded forms as well as (but not limited to) those works that use books as a reference or metaphor to create other conceptual forms.

The exhibition was co-juried by Beverly Carver, Special Collections Librarian at the University of Texas at Arlington, Arlington, Texas and Lauren Cross, Director/Curator of WoCA Projects, Fort Worth, Texas.

One artist will receive The Walter and Marliee Landry Book Purchase Award of $500, sponsored by Glenn and Sandy Landry in honor of their beloved parents. The artists’ selected work will be added to the University of Texas at Arlington’s Art/Art History & Rare Books Collection.

So join us tonight, December 11th from 6-8:30 p.m. for the opening reception and the presentation of the Walter and Marliee Landry Book Purchase Award with light refreshments and drinks. The opening reception is free and open to the public.
